Solitary Tree in Mexico

One of our favorite places to stay when traveling in Mexico is the town of Tequisquiapan. It is located in the state of Queretaro. This is the geographical center of Mexico and is surrounded by some beautiful mountains. We spent many days traveling the back roads in the mountains enjoying the magnificent views and the small mountain towns we entered.  We were always able to find some great food and meet some interesting people. We have a healthy awareness about being out in the wilderness traveling in unexplored regions and the dangers that can exist. We certainly have had our moments of despair with car problems or being lost in the mountains. Despite the unexpected problems we have encountered, we have always felt that the rewards of taking some risk out weight the few problems we have had to deal with in our travels. This scene of the solitary tree was taken while traveling many of the back roads we were on in Mexico.


  1. I prefer to have to deal with problems you talk about and seeing lots of wonderful things than to stay home and see nothing. There is so much to see in the world ! This is such a beautiful image, the clouds are amazing. I really love your photography John, superb black and whites !

  2. Jocelyne,
    Thanks for stopping in and commenting on my photography. You are correct in saying there is so much in the world to see. I feel blessed to have the ability to travel and experience the different regions and cultures of the world.
