Nick Rendon is a bright, well informed young man. Very pleasant. In other words, a good companion on a photo shoot. That's one of the gifts of photography: the company of people who like to shoot in ways similar to mine. And shooting outdoors things, such as storms and stars, makes it even better. Long trips and outdoors settings.
Nick and I traveled to a place I sometimes use when shooting the Milky Way. It's a promontory that juts over the Rio Grande valley south of the Bosque del Apache.

I saw the low clouds and initially thought they might be a problem. Then I remembered how, if not too heavy, they could add depth and a bit of mystery to a shoot.
