Last dash of color

Our last night at Big Bend Ranch State Park – I was lucky once again to have some good clouds to add to the color palette.


The more images I take, the more I have come to think that good clouds can make an otherwise wonderful bit of scenery seem almost magical…..  These light, wispy clouds were just racing across the sky and the wind was absolutely howling. An added bonus was the creosote was starting to smell which means that rain is not far behind in the desert.  All in all it was quite magical!
