Twisted Reach

Another NXNW location with Bob Lussier, Dave Wilson and Justin Balog, the other part of the crew headed back to Denver. We spent Sunday night in Grand Junction Colorado and decided to head over to the Colorado National Monument, WOW, the clouds finally came out for the NXNW crew on this fantastic night. I just loved how this tree’s branches melted in with the clouds ….as if it were planned, I came across this scene and had to snap a few brackets, this tree was cool as ever and with the clouds, it just made it a bit more dramatic.

As the night went on the sky really started to pop with color and clouds, we had very little cloud activity during the Moab visit so the clouds were a welcome sight.

Have a great Tuesday, thanks for looking!
