    Hi and intro from northern New Mexico

    Have been lurking for about a month so thought I'd pass along an introduction as it looks like this is a great resource and community. Have resided in New Mexico (Los Alamos to be specific) raising family etc. for about 20 yrs. after growing up (have I grown up yet?) in So. Cal. Besides work and family, I've been a youth soccer coach for ~15 yrs, love to ride my bikes, and generally take advantage of the beauty of NM and the region.

    Was taught photography by my step-father when I was ~12, took a couple of classes in college to get past the requirement for art, and have enjoyed it ever sense. Have gotten back into being more "serious" about photo in last 5 yrs or so, even going so far as to have built a small darkroom. I can't say I'm good photographer, but maybe someday.

    Like most people these days, we're way too busy for our own good, which means that photography, which I love, is unfortunately a lower priority than I'd like. Alas, how to fix this.....

    Cheers,

    Todd Haines
    aka astroclimb

    P.S. Have attached photo taken near Bandilear, my scanning of the photo is poor (done on a cheap printer/copier/scanner/dishwasher) but I hope you enjoy.

    We've stopped at the Soda Dam many times; been lucky enough to have the opportunity to drive through the Jemez from Albuquerque or Bernalillo home on many different occasions over the years. In fact, have gotten to do some excellent bike rides around the Jemez as well, though they're not stark and rugged like the Rockies (or eastern Sierras, or Alps, etc., etc.) they're beautiful mountains.
