No, not the 1990 war against Iraq. This was the actual “desert storm” that my wife and I ran into a couple of months ago in Red Rock Canyon (just outside Las Vegas). I’ve already posted once on this somewhat unusual event here (the snow in October), but the image you see above isn’t mine. My wife took it with her Canon G10.
Believe it or not, I’m still going through those “trip” photographs. Especially hers. When I saw this one, I decided it might translate well into black and white (cloud images generally do, I think).
I can’t remember ever seeing this that day. Which is surprising, since I’m always looking for big, nasty looking clouds. The damn snow (off in the other direction) must have had me completely mesmerized. Fortunately, she did see it.
Good shot, kiddo.
