Big Bend, May 2013

Big Bend usually provides wonderful opportunities for scenic photographs and a trip with fellow photographers Bruce Leander, Rigo Vallejo, and Rick Capozza on May 9-13 was no exception. A mix of cloudy and clear skies yielded a variety of shots.

We tried nighttime shots of the Milky Way, and learned more about the technique for getting these pictures. 

There are some new additions to the Big Bend wildflower collection as well.
