Diablo Canyon revisited

Life got in the way and there have not been many opportunities to got out and shoot. Unfortunately this is not going to change anytime soon but tonight was an exception and it paid of nicely. The skies, the sunset all played along and allowed me to bring some nice images home. Orange filter and black and white did their job adding a lot of drama to the sky. There are a few more coming later but this is already a nice collection to start with.

A few days before I had to take a short trip to Texas and on the way back I got a stark reminder of the drought and resulting forest fires. This one had just started in Lincoln national forest and looked like someone at the nearby White Sands Missile Range had overshot. One could visually see how the fire’s continuous stream of combustion grew in leaps and bounds.

But even without any fire the drive through the south, the borderland between New Mexico and Texas is bleak, a wasteland but in its very own way absolutely remarkable.
