Why do we make numerous runs to favorite locations? Well, because the light is different each time. Take the case of Steptoe Butte from which this scene was shot. Each time on this trip the atmospheric conditions were different. On this particular night the air was much cleaner and thus clearer, making for what you might call “cherry” light.
This shot is a bit out of the norm for me. I’m typically more drawn to the the simple graphic patterns from the Butte. Maybe it was the light that caused me to include the farm and more trees than normal? I’m not sure, but what I do know is that I loved the golden quality of the light! When the light is good, its great!
