A few weeks ago, I grabbed the camera on my way over to a friend’s house, I get to live in and drive through some very pretty country, we have been here a little over 5 years now, one of the first things I thought when we first moved here was that I hope I never get used to the views out here, I’m still awed by them. This is the high desert, in the mountains of far western Texas.
This isn’t for just anyone though, along with these pretty vistas come some pretty harsh country, it’s bone dry most of the time, punctuated with downpours that can tear up our roads and leave us stuck in or out depending on what side of the creek I’m on at the time. Right now we are having a very nice soft rain, the lightening is spectacular and the thunder that goes with it, well it’s one of my favorite sounds, booms rolling from one side of the valley to the other side. Here are a few of the pictures I took of my drive home, it was getting late in the evening and I had barely enough light to capture these images, hope you enjoy them.
