Pride of Placitas
David Cramer was a highly skilled nature photographer and a fixture in the Placitas arts community. After retiring from a career in psychology in Texas, he moved to New Mexico and shot adamantly for the seven years until his death in 2010. His images depict leaping mountain lions frozen in mid-air against expansive vistas, menacing owls and wild horses roaming the open plains. He was also a founding member of the Placitas photo collective, Perspectives. A reception for his work will take place today from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Placitas Community Library (453 Hwy. 165). Cramer's work will be for sale, and all of the event's proceeds will benefit the library. The show is already up and runs through Nov. 30.
