Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Texas

We drove north too fast! After enjoying 80-85 degree and dry weather conditions in Big Bend National Park, we headed up to Guadalupe where we were shocked to see snow for the first time on our trip. It was just a light dusting of snow that was perfect for photography and I had to pull the truck over a few times along the way to make sure I captured it before it was gone.

I made the image below from the parking lot at the visitor’s center.

It did not last however and, going from one extreme to the other, I was left with no clouds in the sky when I made this image of el Capitan at sunset the next day.

It was extremely dark at night here being very far away from any city lights. Tomorrow I’ll show you some experiments I did with night photography during my visit.

    Nice combinations of clouds, snow and rugged mountains. I didn’t know there was another El Cap. The Yosemite one looks a little bit more impressive I think but it’s so difficult to get a sense of scale.

      Hi Andy, I was surprised too that there was another El Cap. I have to agree the one in Yosemite is more impressive, but hey – it’s Yosemite!! Even after all the places I have been to on this trip, nothing is as dramatic as Yosemite. Thanks for your comments.
