While we were in the desert, I spent almost every evening on photography. One of my favorite places is "Shyla's Mesa". It's the far right flat-topped hill in this photo. It's just barely in the sunlight.
This was one of my favorites that I made on Shyla's Mesa in April. Shyla is in front, and R is chasing her. Look at how hard R was galloping. He was frantically trying to catch Shyla. He has such an incredibly strong spirit.
I get so involved in photography that I often don't notice what is happening around me. Suddenly, as I was photographing the dogs, I heard a rumble from the sky and looked to the south. Oh my!
During this desert trip, I learned how huge desert storms can be. They can suddenly fill an entire horizon. I quickly switched to a wide angle lens to get a better view. The sky had already become even more threatening.
I watched the storm change colors, and I listened to the rumbling. Huge bolts of lightning zig-zagged through the cloud. Yet again, I didn't manage to capture one with my camera.
Even the storms in the desert are gorgeous!
