Rain Clouds and Rays at Dusk. Carrizo Plain National Monument. 2019.
Arriving late in the day left me little time to take in my surroundings. I kept driving south to explore, toward the darkness on the horizon. I drove into rain, took a gravel road into the fields of grasses and distant bands of color. I found myself completely alone, quite content and finally feeling my heart start to slow into the rhythm of the real world. That had happened earlier in the day as well, alongside another lonely road with great cumulus clouds above the flower covered hills. The rain stopped, light rays broke through and here is my attempt to hold that moment.
