Re: New Mexico locations

What part of the state are you in?

Bosque Del Apache for birding is well known and highly regarded, perfect time of year as well. It's outside Soccorro, NM which is pretty well in the center of the state.

White Sands National Monument near Alamogordo (Southern central NM) is hugely popular as a photo destination. Catching a full moon tour is remarkable for the light levels at midnight.

The catwalk area in the Gila wildlife refuge, Mogollon, Taos, Silver City, downtown Santa Fe, downtown Mesilla, Mesa Verde isn't "in" NM but it's pretty darn close up in the 4 corners region.

The VLA (Very Large Array) west of Soccorro is interesting if you have lucky timing, continuing on that road west leads you to Pie Town, NM. Google it as there is a great article about a historical photo project there.

Elephant Butte Lake, Lake Bonita, the Rio Grande, Jornada Del Muerto, Aldo Leopold wilderness...

Three Rivers Petroglyph site outside Tularosa.

There is a tour company that runs photo safaris on Ted Turner's private land, Jim Blue or something like that.

The State is chock full of just about anything you'd like to photograph, no ocean views...
