Fine Art Landscape: Ruidoso New Mexico

In this gallery you will find high resolution fine art landscape photography from my latest work in the South Central Mountains of New Mexico.  Ruidoso is home to my new studio gallery Topside Gallery.  When in Ruidoso please make plans to come by my studio gallery high above Midtown Ruidoso.  In addition to fine art landscape photography from Ruidoso and the surrounding area the studio houses the worlds largest collection of fine art oil & gas photography from locations throughout the United States.  The gallery is appointment only so please contact Shanna Flaherty at 432-208-5412 to set up a time to come by.  Over 150 large format high resolution panoramic prints are available for viewing so we usually like to reset the gallery to reflect prints you would like to see.  

You can also choose to stay in one of our six upcale short term vacation rental properties.  Each location has  an in home art gallery complete with gallery lighting.  The galleries feature fine art landscapes from the Ruidoso area but can be reset to reflect choices you may want to see in my fine art oil & gas photography.  The homes provide a rare opportunity to see my work properly lit under gallery conditions and are a great for people looking for ideas in regard to updating a home or office.

Christmas At Midtown

Christmas At Midtown

The image is a high resolution panorama with an approximate 4:1 ratio featuring the shopping district of Midtown Ruidoso New Mexico.  The image was taken three days after Christmas at 4:00 a.m. well before sunrise.  The moon was full Christmas day and two days later the moon is at my back balancing the light from the city with the illumination of Sierra Blanca towering above Ruidoso.  The image is a composite of 63 high resolution images into one panorama containing 4.24 billion pixels.  Sizes range from 32" to 96" wide.  When in Ruidoso come by my new studio gallery Topside Gallery to see the image in large format under gallery lighting conditions.

Three Rivers Spring Panorama In Sepia

Three Rivers Spring Panorama In Sepia was photographed in early June 2016. The image was taken at an elevation of 11,600 feet on a mountain peak just North of Sierra Blanca.  The panoramic image is centered above the Three Rivers Wilderness on the West side of Sierra Blanca. This is a high resolution 4:1 composite panorama made from 112 medium format images.  The panorama is composed of 6.24 billion pixels. Fine art prints are available from 36 to 96" in length. The image features a developing line of thundershowers crossing the Tularosa Basin. At an altitude of 11,600 feet, the late afternoon sunlight can be seen shining through the rain shafts and virga not yet reaching the ground. In early June the moisture from the Summer Monsoon has not yet reached the West side of the Central Mountains. Daytime heating this time of year is enough to generate the showers but most of the the precipitation evaporates before reaching the ground. See the 96" version of this 4:1 panorama at my studio gallery at Topside Gallery overlooking Ruidoso New Mexico. Fine art landscape photography by Robert D. Flaherty     .

Rio Ruidoso Gold

Rio Ruidoso Gold is an abstract image taken in the Upper Canyon section of the Ruidoso River during a cold snap in the Fall of 2015.  The image was taken in a shaded part of the river at midmorning.  The golden color in the photograph comes from bright light being reflected back into the scene.  The image is a core piece in the decor for several of our nightly rentals at 2 Ruidoso Redheads. The mixture of brown and gold in the image is a wonderful element to decorate with.  Come see the artwork properly lit at my studio gallery Topside Gallery overlooking Ruidoso New Mexico.
