365.101 Somewhere North of Alpine, TX

Well, I spent the day driving to Marfa, TX, with momma where we’ll spend the next 4 days wandering and shooting around town and various parts of The Big Bend.

It had just finished raining—a decidedly rare event for this part of the country, where average yearly rainfall is in the 5″ range—and the windshield was bug free for the first time in many hours. I had been admiring the clouds for quite some time when we came over a hill, the shimmering on the wet road, the sun shining through the fluffy and rather friendly looking clouds that had completely overtaken the ginormous sky.

It was probably a bit dangerous, perhaps, but couldn’t resist popping off a few shots, and this is one of them, probably the best.

(FYI, I shot Marfa for a couple of hours after I arrived, but I’m too wiped out to share any just now. I’ll try to dole out a few every day, but I intend to spend as much time as possible shooting, wandering around, shooting, shooting, wandering around, drinking lots of water, shooting, and maybe, just maybe, shooting even more.)
