Night and day

Continuing with the Big Bend Ranch theme…

Snapped this shot of the desert floor as the sun was setting and bathed the small cactus with a nice glow.  It’s yet another reminder that everything in the desert will stick you or bite you – even the grass on the left side of the image will poke you and then start to abrade your skin – much like little fishhooks!

Sticky glow

Next up, here’s a typical night sky in the Big Bend region.  15 second exposure with my little Canon G10 and a touch of light painting on the tent.  Night time is one of my many favorites at Big Bend – you can easily lose yourself in the vast number of stars that grace the heavens each night.

Night time is the right time...
