Albuquerque Dawn

From where I live there are two main routes to drive to Las Vegas. The quicker route is the northern route along Interstate 70 and Interstate 15, but there was snow that way on the drive to Vegas so we drove the southern route, along Interstate 25 and Interstate 40. These two roads cross in Albuquerque, and we were there just before dawn, where I took this Skywatch Friday photo from a gas station on I-40.
This is looking over the city towards the Sandia Mountains. On the way back we drove the northern route, and I've got a Skywatch photo from that drive that I'll probably post next week.

  2. Terrific capture as always, Al! Love those BLUE skies! We have blue skies here today and it's delightful -- rain returns tomorrow, but I'll take the sun whenever I can get it!! Have a good day!
