I went to Big Bend recently to take on a specific photo project (a sub-project within my Visions of Big Bend Photo Project). This photo is from the trip but not from the sub-project
Nugent Mountain – click for larger image
Canon 5D II with 24mm f/1.4L II + cir. pol.
f/8, 1/90 sec., ISO 200
I couldn’t pass up this scene with the great clouds framing Nugent Mountain. It was just too nice despite the harsh mid-day light. This was shot along Glenn Springs Road in the backcountry.
I’ll get to my sub-project very soon, but this photo is a slight diversion and the possible start to a new sub-project. It would be very interesting to have portraits of every named peak and mountain in Big Bend. “Desert Mountain Portraits”, or something like that perhaps? Anyway, during the recent trip, I also made similar pictures of some other peaks that would go along with this and perhaps might just kick off this sub-project. We’ll see…
