Description

The sky on this day was incredible. I had just spent two hours photographing horses and was a little tired of shooting. But altocumulus clouds don't happen often and I had to shoot the sunset. With rising air creating so many cloud lumps the sky took a rippled appearance. As I pulled off the side of the road my truck got stuck in some mud. I went shooting anyways. And figured that I would worry about it later. The clouds and surrounding scenery had my mind too focused on shooting. After the amazing sunset I had to face reality and get my truck unstuck.Visit My Website
