New Mexico's wide open skies enable us to see "edges," those incredible spaces where the darkness of a departing storm meets the brilliance of a setting sun. Bright against dark, saturated colors and strong shadows — it's magical. And that's the feeling I'm getting here.

I went to bed at 9:30 last night and at 12:30 this morning got up to create this, which took probably six hours to finish. This, to me, is what photography is all about — exploring, seeing, noticing, composing, combining — making something so different, something that, had I not created it, would never be seen.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going back to bed! ©Carol Leigh

P.S. Happy Anniversary to Chris, without whom I never would be able to do as much as I do. Love you.
