Blacks Crossing Photography and Writing | head in the clouds

head in the clouds

September 03, 2017  •  1 Comment

During this week of devastation on the Gulf Coast of Texas from Hurricane Harvey, and fires in the western United States, the air in New Mexico was rendered into an odd haze that has obscured almost all the surrounding mountains.  The atmosphere wasn't precisely smoke filled, nor did it contain massive amounts of moisture from Harvey or Lidia off of Baja in the Gulf of California.  But is was like a light blanket over the land.  On occasion, nature flung off the covers and produced some beautiful uplifts.  Once again, my eyes and head turned upward and inward into the clouds.
