Traveling on Interstate 25, heading south between Pueblo, Colorado and Raton, New Mexico, this is the view of the wide-open prairie. Amazing cotton-ball clouds hung in the air that day, as if Ms. O’Keeffe had painted them herself. That little voice inside of me prodded, “take the picture, take the picture!” Luckily I was a backseat passenger that day, with my camera by my side. Of course the driver was trying to make good time and had no intentions of pulling over on the side of the highway so I could snap a photo. So I did the next best thing. I rolled down the window, braced my lens against the onslaught of rushing air, held my breath and shot off as many photos as I could before the big-sky landscape was gone from view. I knew most of the images would probably be blurry with motion, but I had to take the chance. So glad that I did. I was rewarded with one perfect photo and “Big Sky Clouds” has now become my top-selling microstock image!
