    • I came to appreciate the picture more after I saw it than when I took it.

      • Because you were more focused on the picture than the real life image. You lost focus. They usually say when people record or take pictures they lose the moment

        • With digital photography, there’s no reason not to experiment. Some pictures come out better than I expected, while others come out worse. Beyond that, my own estimation of an image changes. I originally had quite a different cloud-over-mountain image in this post, but I replaced it with this one, which struck me as more different from any I’d posted.

  5. If I’d only seen the photo, I never would have imagined it was taken during your trip through the southwest. I would have said New Zealand, or Tahiti, or Scotland. Draping clouds really can transform a landscape. It’s a beautiful image.

    • We’d had overcast skies and even some rain at the Valley of Fire on the previous day. Now it was morning, and these clouds gradually dissipated and returned the desert to sunshine.

      Speaking of New Zealand and Scotland, the boyfriend of our grand-niece played a bagpipe at the wedding of our niece yesterday afternoon.
