Insight from a local photographer, Gary Lamott: "Here in the High Desert water is especially precious! I visited Shady Lakes for the first time recently with a good friend! Here is one of the only places where you can see the Sandia Mountains and the New Mexico skies reflected in water as well as many interesting inhabitants! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to see more of my work. Thank you." Thank you Gary for sharing your beautiful photographs with us!
