El Paso may be in the desert, but rain and mist make a welcome appearance now and again. This past August and September saw more than our normal share of rain, mist, and beautiful fog-shrouded mountains — in this case the Franklin Mountains that divide the city of El Paso.
When clouds top the Franklins I enjoy grabbing the camera and snapping a few shots. The novelty never wears thin as I stand in my front yard or on a nearby street to capture the scene.
If the winds are just right the mist will flow down the slopes with a dynamic cascading effect that is absolutely stunning.
On this particular day late last month Ursula and I were off to photograph a new listing (Ursula is, after all, a REALTOR®, and I am her chief photographer and brochure designer). After a stop along the way to capture closeups of the fog, I took advantage of the huge backyard of her current listing to piece together some stunning panoramic images of the Franklins suspended beneath a low ceiling.
Today I thought I would share with you the results of that day. I hope you enjoy them.
