Lenticular Clouds, Sangre De Cristo Mountains, NM

Lenticular Clouds, Sangre De Cristo Mountains, NM. I photographed these clouds earlier yesterday in broad daylight. They were beautiful of course but I couldn’t capture the fluid motion I felt when looking at them. So I made this image from our driveway after the sun was well and truly set and used a long exposure to show the movement, with the last light causing them to glow this way. Thanks for looking and keep looking up. This is the time of year for lenticular clouds. G

Lenticular Clouds

Lenticular Clouds. I made plenty of images of this scene yesterday evening from the garden. I liked the spectacular reds, oranges and yellows of course. However, I actually prefer this exposure after the sun went down, when the light levels were much lower, and the colors more subtle with soft lavender hues. Here’s and image I made on January 22nd 2015 in Pojoaque, NM
