In contrast to my previous post here’s a group of images that are more about the sky than the mountains. All shot from our property, the sky above the Cimarron Range to our east puts on a wonderful show many mornings and evenings. In the morning the sun comes over the mountains a little late… about 30 minutes past the scheduled sunrise time. During that time the changing light can paint the sky in unpredictable strokes of color and abstract designs. The mountains, still sleeping take on shadowy dark hues revealing minimal detail. One morning a rainbow cloud came by for a brief visit. Thinking it was very unusual I ran to get my camera, and photographed it from our deck. Luckily the sky to the east can be equally as lively at the end of the day as the mountains reflect sunset’s fading light and hues. I do so love and appreciate our Cimarron view… it’s full of beautiful surprises!
