New Mexico has many facets; the state changes greatly as you go north to south and east to west. I find the rural scenes particularly evocative. These two are in Magdalena, an historic Old West village west of Socorro on the way to the Very Large Observatory.

These are some of my first photos with the GF1 with 20mm f/1.7 lens. I found it initially a bit constraining to be forced to use a single focal length rather than a zoom, but enjoy the moderate wide-angle perspective.

Vic, thanks so much for these! Your first is beautiful and I like the way you've framed it having the foreground in there as well as the mountains and sky behind rather than filling the frame with the barn. It is a great lens and I like the angle of view it offers, as well.

This second one caught my eye when I first saw it in the thumbnails of random shots across the top of the forum - that looks like one really big bull!

Years ago I spent some time in New Mexico and would love to go back there.
