Last evening

Last evening

During my month here, I have spent several mornings in the area between Old NE Road and the Big Badlands Overlook.  It gets great morning light and there are many interesting details, shapes and formations, especially once you get off the road and walk around a bit.  I had been wanting to spend some time in the area in the evening, because I had observed it had good light in the evenings, too.  So, for my last evening, I decided to capture some images in that area. 

Unfortunately, the clouds did not cooperate.  I started over in the area of the Big Badlands Overlook, capturing the many wonderful layers through light and shadow.  I saw that the sun was starting to go behind a large band of clouds, so I headed over to the Old NE Road to capture some images there.  I was too late.  Once the sun went behind a particularly large band of clouds – that seemed to materialize out of nowhere – that was it for the evening.  I stopped by to check on my remote camera and put in a new CF (compact flash) card, and headed in for the evening.  Tomorrow morning will be my last time out in the field here.  Hopefully the clouds will clear up tonight – it is raining right now as I type – so I can get one more good morning.
