This scene may not be a stranger to some of you. It most definitely isn't for me. Since I've started seriously chasing storms earlier this year, I've probably taken photographs from this spot 10 times? I can't help it. The road and cliffs stay the same, but the light, the shadows and the clouds always change.

I'll probably throw something together someday with all the different views of this place over the course of a year.

I photographed this last Monday while out with my daughter. She was in her car seat, watching Toy Story on the DVD player and I was setting up in the middle of the road. I can't wait for the day she can go out there with me and appreciate the view from this spot. I hope she enjoys it as much as I do.

This is a six-bracket exposure using my trusty Tamron 17-35mm 2.8, Photomatix, CS5 and other goodies.

    I never tire of viewing the scene--it looks different every time! (I'm surprised Lyla doesn't already have her own camera!!)
