Some sunsets are best photographed “over your shoulder” such as this one taken on Highway 207 just south of Claude, Texas. Highway 207 runs straight north in this perfectly flat part of Armstrong county and I thought I’d catch a nice sunset looking to the west after climbing out of Palo Duro Canyon. Unfortunately, the low clouds hid much of the sunset but painted the wheat fields to the east with a wonderful, warm glow for me to capture. The weather in the Texas High Plains is fickle, but I’ll take a quiet sunset over a thunderstorm any day of the week.
I’ve begun posting each image in Flickr and Panoramio (Google Maps & Google Earth) along with its geographic location. I’m not quite geotagging yet (due to Canon’s ridiculous hardware requirements) but this will give you an idea of where I took my shots here in Texas.
