Ute Reservoir


This is the first in a series of photos I’ll post showing cool things I’ve seen from the air.  I love to sit by the window and watch the world go by.  While it’d be fun to go hiking in all these places to truly “see the world”, seeing the world from 30,000 feet is kinda fun, too.  So in this series, I’ll post a photo I’ve taken from the plane, and link to the Google Maps satellite imagery of the same object, so you can explore the surrounding area.

I’m going to go ahead and apologize ahead of time for the poor image quality in my aerial photos.  A) Airplane windows are often very scratched and/or dirty,  2)  haze is a contrast killer.  I do what I can to fix things up, but I think you’ll find the Google images are typically superior (as you would hope, given the millions it takes to produce them).  But enough of that…here we go!

This is the Ute Reservoir in New Mexico, and I loved how the color flows from red to deep green, as the sediment content in the water changes.  Mother nature sure is a beautiful artist!
