I’d been shooting at another location about 30 miles away when a winter storm blew in. With little time to spare I made the decision to leave and drive out to this spectacular mountain situated in northwest New Mexico. I’d only ever seen the rock from a distance and had no idea where I’d find a composition. As I approached from the south the storm worsened and visibility reduced to less than a half mile. It was fast approaching sunset so I had little time to waste, I used my handheld GPS to get in a position roughly southwest of the rock. I parked the car at the side of the highway but could see nothing of the mountain. Incredibly right at sunset the clouds cleared and I realised I’d parked at a great spot and was able to capture this scene. Some telegraph poles were removed in Photoshop
