Featured Image – Brushing Chisos
I have been very remiss in keeping this page up to date so I will be playing some catch up in the coming weeks (I hope). This image was taken on a photo expedition mounted with my friend and fellow shooter of almost 30 years, Alex Suarez. Every year or so we attempt an expedition out into West Texas.
This shot was taken at the end of a long day of offroading around Big Bend National Park over the Thanksgiving 2011 holiday. A cold front had just passed through and had dropped some rain on the desert. Just before sunset the sun dropped below the clouds lighting up the Chisos Mountains to the east. For those of you familiar with the park we were right by where Maverick Road ends at the ranger station at the west entrance to Big Bend National Park.
It was one of those perfect moments landscape photographers dream for. I shot this with my Tokina 12-24, which does a great job with these kinds of clouds. Overall, a very satisfying end to the day and my favorite shot from a trip filled with great shots.
