Band of light

On the way down to Big Bend the last time, this thunderstorm off to the east and the resulting band of light made me come to an emergency stop, reach for the little G12 (the big boys were packed away nicely) and run across the road to capture the light.

light and dark

Again, goes to show ya that you don’t need a big camera to really capture a scene!

  1. Sweet Derrick!!

  2. Man! The sky in itself is an absolute stunner, but that ‘band’ across the horizon definitely makes this one a T.K.O. Mr. B!

  3. Impressive. Looking forward to more. -Renee

  4. WOW! That must have been some storm with clouds like that!

    • It was one of those typical desert storms – really really dark in one direction and bright blue sky in the other. 😉 A gully washer for sure, of those lucky enough to be in the way.

  5. Fabulous, Derrick! Just amazing.

  6. Wow! I love the way you captured the nuances in the sky. An almost painterly quality.
