Indeed the light is brillant but at that particular latitude it is seems very harsh. I think one of th reasons Ansel Adams remarked on the quality of light in New Mexico is beacause at the latitude where he and Georgia O'Keeffe lived in Abiquiú, NM. The light is at just such an angle that it seems softer. In either location morning and evening are the best times to shoot.
I have visited the outside of the Adams/O'Keeffe residence when I was young because my family used to visit Ghost Ranch, NM [link] it is a religous retreat center, my father was a minister before I was born and we used to go there vacation. Ansel was right the light there is amazing!
