Happy Valentine's Day!

We are in the middle of a snow storm here in New Mexico. Coming from California, I think it's a wonderland! Driving to work this morning I stopped several times to admire and snap the scenery. It feels like a Valentine from Mother Nature.....

Hugs and Valentine kisses to you!

Just Another Day at the Office

It's been snowing. At least I think it's snow. Maybe its hail. Coming from California I'm not always sure! It's white...but it's small and hard and hurts when it smacks you in the face. Occasionally it switches to big soft flakes that float gently down and frost our cars...but it's usually the hard, painful stuff. This is 'base camp' where all the working trucks and the actors dressing rooms are parked. You can't see my truck as it's tucked behind the first row you can see here. It's only about 3:30 in the afternoon and already getting dark! The brown spots in the foreground are big holes of mud that we fell into once they were disguised by the snow/hail!

After I took that shot I waded across the field to take this picture of the gaffers lighting the set. It looked so mysterious in the gloaming, I thought I'd share it with you. We filmed until about 11PM than I had a truly terrifying hour long drive back to my hotel. I'm not used to driving through pelting ice and snow and was freaked out that I could barley see the hood of my car!
