Sotol Vista at Dawn

I always think of Sotol Vista as an evening place as it stares down west into the desert.

On a whim I decided to stop there in the morning. Perhaps the sun would light up the distant ridges and peaks.

Well on this day the cloud cover was good. I did not get the distant peaks lit up. No, I got the clouds lit up.

Even better!

I had set up in the dark looking west so I did a pivot, re-level, and refocus to go after the clouds and ridges to the south and east.

Here is a view of that morning
