After years of not having a real vacation I finally broke down and visited an area of the country I'm very partial to: Southern NM. Specifically the area surrounding Holloman AFB and the nearby mountainous areas of Cloudcroft and Ruidoso.
I didn't get to travel around to all the places I wanted but got some cool wintery photos with my iPhone. The ultra-wide shots were done with the iPhone 4s "panorama" mode - about 180-degree turns.
For someone who spends 99% percent of his time in the brown of the desert southwest it was nice to get up to 10,000 feet and be in crisp, clean mountain air, away from humans and tourists.
