The Crater at last.

It was really cool driving up to this huge hole in the middle of New Mexico. The three things that ran through my mind were:
1. How glad I was that I wasn't standing there when that thing hit.
2. How powerful, wild and yet extremely romantic and loving is my God.
3. That this would be fun to blog about. :) So I hope you can enjoy it as much as I did.

I tried to get some of the moon-like rock in the foreground of this image so you could see the texture. It was pretty crazy. I'm not sure I've ever seen anything like it. And I'm not so sure it really even looks like moon rock. I just assume it does. I haven't been to the moon . . . yet! (And just a side note. When I do get to go, I'm not going alone . . .)

Me, chillin' on the edge. (Sorry, I'm a wedding photographer. I can't do landscape for very long before a person shows up in my pictures . . . even if that means it has to be me. I just do landscape because I have this camera that seems to go everywhere I go like it's married to me.)

This isn't the coolest image in the world. But it serves a purpose for those of you interested. This was shot with my Canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS L Series lens. I zoomed in as far as I could and this is what I got. The little speck of a guy on the bottom right hand side of the fence is 6 feet tall. So I hope this helps put the size of this crater in perspective. Okay, you still can't see him . . . hmmm . . . look for the American Flag. The red and blue should give him away.

Playing with the sun. We were buddies till I couldn't see anything anymore.

I like grass in pictures . . . and believe it or not I found some up there . . . okay, more like weeds.

Last but not least, a picture of the guy who basically kicked us out because they were closing. I think my uncle (on the left) was getting a laugh out of the fact I was doing a group shot with the guy who was hurrying us out of the place. Hey, he probably needed to get home to his wife and kids. And that place is a million and one miles away from anything. It's smack dab in the middle of Nowheresville!

  1. Very cool! I had to laugh at the wedding photographer paragraph... sometimes it drives me nuts when I don't have any photos of people. The scenery will be there forever, and the people won't. :)

    I love how you work the sun into everything!

  9. Hahaha. I don't know. I would love having some of my work in a gallery. That would be quiet the honor. It's kind of funny, I've filled this blog with mostly landscape stuff and I'm actually not all that great at landscape. I focus primarily on wedding photography . . . Thanks for the encouragement!
