Bosque

Straddling along the Rio Grande stands a desert oasis known as the Bosque (Spanish for forest), a mostly cottonwood forest that even runs through the heart of the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico. A natural escape from the modern hustles of city life, I have often gone on hikes or bike rides through the Bosque while growing up in Albuquerque. Often a source of inspiration, I had conceived a few art projects while in high school and even while in college when venturing among the cottonwoods. I have always been captivated by the wintering birds that migrate here flying from the north in their V-formations. Recently venturing to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge near Socorro, New Mexico to see these captivating birds such as sandhill cranes and snow geese, and as well as recently moving back to Albuquerque—I have returned to these woods photographing this natural oasis seeking new inspiration. . . .
