Robt! How ya be? I was in Abilene to be there for my daughter, as she was having her first child, and needed some support & help. Got to do her maternity pics before hand too.
Sadly, two weeks after my Granddaughter was born, I had to make a mad dash to AZ to be with my Mom, as she went into Hospice (Cancer) and lost her battle about 5 days after getting there.
Been quite the roller coaster ride the last month.

Breathtaking. So many DPCers living near extreme weather! I'm almost jealous. You have truly captured a spectacle of nature.

Looks like a water reflection split screen at first glance. Great quality, and the border gives it a "motivational poster look."

wow, what a sky. I love frames around pictures, but I am not sure that delicate white line does this shot justice...in any case 8
