Not a bad article, but this part especially caught my attention, as it is 100% true:
Go anywhere else in the country, meet another person from Albuquerque, and you will find that you have no more than one degree of separation from this random stranger. Seriously. It’s pretty cool.
I know a famous person?!!,!!
AYE AMY, IT’S YOU!

Volcano of Light
Nikon D7000, 1/15, f/8, Nikon 70-200mm lens at 70mm
On my recent trip to New Mexico I resolved not to waste any sunrise or sunset (in exchange for a small toll on my sleeping). While the lighting is definitely more flattering to nature and landscape scenes during these hours, it is usually only “generically good”. You can only shoot so many typical red/orange/yellow sunsets before they all start to look the same. This sunset was one lucky exception. Just before a heavy rainstorm it lit up these clouds as a momentary volcano. I was perfectly content to have spent half an hour photographing cranes in somewhat disappointing light, only to look up for a few minutes and capture this brief spectacle.
