Idyllic - View across the Urraca Ranch with the Spanish Peaks beyond - this remote region of New Mexico is still largely uninhabited to this day.
Unseen album reveals the life of a cowboy in the real wild west...
Fascinating previously unseen early photos of cowboys in the Wild West have come to light 130 years later.
They show life on the ranches of Colorado and New Mexico in the vast expanses of the south west US in the 1880s.
One dramatic image captures the thrilling moment a group of cowboys ride towards the camera with hats held aloft.
The photos are thought to have been taken by a British farmhand who travelled Stateside in the late 19th century to earn a living.
