Adobe Church (Weekend Reflections # 91)

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Another reflection from New Mexico. This time it's an adobe church and a white tree under a beautiful blue sky. It reflected in the window across the street.
I have a California reflection at my other blog.

Dear James, i'm sorry to have to write this, but like last week, impossible to link!I guess the 2.0 version does not accept french bloggers?..And what does "Click an ad link" mean?..I'd like to help you but I don't understand!
And BTW, your reflection is gorgeous! I like this word, "adobe"..and the colors make a marvellous contrast, beautyfully underlined by the white frame.

Nice photo!

Leovi said...

Magniifica light, I love the reflection in the window.

Dorian Susan said...

As always your reflections are wonderful. The framing is very appealing offsetting the image. I NEVER click through to ads, but for you-I did. Dangerous to click a camera shop ad-potential to spend money, yikes. Happy weekend.

Dina said...

A perfect picture. So pleasant.

I clicked.
Thanks for all the trouble and expense you go through to make this meme meeting place for us.

kaye said...

faboulous shot. I do like the color of the russian olive against the adobe.

Malyss said...

Thank you! Once again , you saved me! I noted all what you wrote and will try to do things this way next week.I would not like to disturb you every friday! :)
OK, I understood, "ad" is for "advertising", and I go immediately clicking everywhere I can to help you!
THANK YOU again! I wish you a nice week-end!

Woody said...

I really enjoy the adobe color, especially against that great sky blue.

A perfect reflection, looks gorgeous too.

Lesa said...

I haven't visited NM in years and this shot makes me want to head out on a road trip. Really lovely reflection and the colors are so vivid-- Wow!

Dianne said...

I love the glow of the tree against the warmth of the building
and then the framing makes it all perfect

Francisca said...

Ah... the colors of New Mexico... warm and inviting. And what a wonderful tree in your reflection too, James. Is that a eucalyptus?

Rather than click on an advertisement, I'd be willing to donate to the cause. Do you have a PayPal account?

Malyss said...

It seems that you're right about Tomas Gudmundsson!There was no name around the statue, but I know that some poets prefer it being so (In France, Chateaubriand has no name on his grave)
You're much more talented than me with Internet!! :o)(To thank you once again, I go back to "ad click"! :o)

Gemma Wiseman said...

Beautiful reflection! Like a fresh painting hanging on a wall!

Pat said...

The reflection looks like a framed photo. So beautiful. New Mexico is one of my favorite states, with that lovely blue sky.

Emille said...

Do you mean clicking on the ad choices in the right side bar?

lotusleaf said...

Gorgeous picture. I shall make it a point to click on the ads.

Nature Rambles said...

I clicked!!

Another beautiful photo, James! The sky can't be bluer than this...and I love that tree too.

Well done, James. The contrast of the rich adobe color and the blue sky is special.

Kim, USA said...

Beautiful colours and image. It is just what I imagine New Mexico to look like.

I'll click and then click some more! You've clearly been inspired by the Southwest—beautiful.

Margaret said...

You have taught me to LOOK for reflections - and I LOVE window and puddle shots now. Thanks!

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Incredible blue sky, even in a reflection.

snowwhite said...

James,
What a perfect blue sky of New Mexico and its reflection!! The shot is more beautiful than framed painting. White frame, building, white tree and its shadow・・・, everything is fit in harmony.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Antonette said...

Great capture! My choice for Weekend Reflections is up. Stop by if you have a moment!

Tash said...

It's a beautiful tree against the New Mexico sky.

Stickup Artist said...

I love those adobe buildings in New Mexico and this church is such a wonderful warm, uplifting, and cheerful color against the brilliant blue sky. Sometimes churches can be a little ponderous and even a little scary and intimidating. I love the alive and joyful feel of this one!

Owen said...

Hey James, slipped in here just under the wire I hope, with the little reflection you noticed in the lid of the picnic jug there at the horse races.

Hope all is well with your moving and travelling, I'm sure you're having a field day wherever you are right now. Beautiful blue sky there to set off the adobe... in the footsteps of Georgia O'Keefe...

Nita Davis said...

Beautiful reflection! Love the color contrasts.

Cheryl said...

The photo is so welcoming...would love to visit this part of our country one day.

lizziviggi said...

Beautiful! I love all that bright blue sky with the orange walls.

ruma said...

A Santa Fe color.
The deep blue...

It reminds me of the atmosphere of the land.

Thank you.
