Sunlight on a Mountain Stream

Early one autumn morning, I found myself tempted by a small parking spot on the road to the Santa Fe ski basin, located in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of northern New Mexico. A peek over the embankment revealed a stream flowing down the mountain. Sunlight sparkled off the water.

Down the hill I went with painting gear to do a quick study, which later became the studio painting shown here.
