In Pictures: Celebrating New Mexico 2021


PURCHASE PHOTO PRINTS

To our readers

It’s been quite a year for news in New Mexico.

We started the year locked down, with students learning from home, many businesses closed and events canceled. Over the course of months, some things have returned to normal while others have not.

Through it all, what never changed was the wonderful, adventurous spirit of New Mexicans and the natural and cultural beauty of our state.

While Journal photographers are tasked with shooting news, both good and bad, it’s been our distinct privilege and pleasure to turn our cameras on occasion to what makes us unique and special — our community and the places we cherish.

We are grateful to be able to share our favorite of these images of enchantment with you this holiday season, and we hope they leave you with a smile, too.
