When I would go out on photo shoots with my dear friend and professional photographer, David Tejada, he always encouraged us to seek the “yummy light” when on a hunt to capture the perfect image. The yummy light can be found at certain times in the morning or evening when the earth, it’s landscapes and it’s people are “kissed” by the sun’s golden hues. Everything becomes washed in light and shadows.
There are certain evenings here in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains when the yummy light bathes the trees and shrubs and hills. Each time that happens, my heart smiles. I try to drink in that fleeting moment before it disappears into the darkness that is brought by dusk. Thankfully, sometimes that moment returns the next day.
