West Texas Sunset

I shot a series of sunsets one evening out in West Texas just south of Brownfield, TX. I was just a bit disappointed…..the previous week I had been in Hobbs, New Mexico and witnessed the most incredible sunset that I have ever seen. Key word was “witnessed” The only place the images reside are in my brain and it a leaky and creaky at best. My work was taking me back the following week so I packed my camera, tripod and remote shutter release. I preparation was rewarded with an awesome sunset……but just a notch below what I witnessed the week before. Lesson learned!

I hope these images are to your liking…..one note, these images have not been manipulated with any software -they are as the camera captured them.

  1. I love the beautiful colors and would like to use this image on a website. I found that you offer prints for sale at your other website but I could not find a fee for just a digital download. Is this image offered on any stock sites? Nice work.

    • Sorry for the long wait for a reply. I made an error on the smugmug site and due to my ignorance I allowed someone to download the entire gallery for like 15 cents. Check back in a couple of days and I will activate the pricing.
