Mountain_Cloaked-AC4x6Last week I had some surprising photographic fun while driving to and from Alpine, Texas. Normally I prefer photographing the country near Alpine in spring or fall when the vegetation’s color is richer, but I had my camera with me just in case I found a good opportunity. I wasn’t disappointed.

I was heading north through the Davis Mountains after just after a rain storm had moved through the area. There were patches of mist and clouds still shrouding the sky and one of those patches afforded me this spectacular shot!

I took the photo hand held with an ISO speed of 100, f-stop of f/7.1, an exposure time (shutter speed) of 1/500 second, aperture of 4.5, focal length of 140mm and no flash. I believe the mountain is called Mitre Peak. If you are interested in purchasing an art print of this piece or any of my other photography, please go to my dedicated photography website. Thanks!

Until next time, may we each rewrite our world for the better one perspective at a time!
