Portfolio: about.me/chacal/ This site includes occasional ramblings by carolyn rhea drapes (chacal la chaise), Lecturer and PhD candidate in Rhetoric and Writing Studies at UTEP. I publish to several social media outlets such as Flickr, Tumblr, and Twitter.
One of the things I love (and have to be ready for) is sundown after snowfall. From my home, the mountains face southwest and usually after it has snowed, the following evenings sundown will be as pink and rose colored as could ever be imagined. It is as if a carnival came to town and wrapped the mountains in a pink soft blanket confection. It does not look real. But you must be ready to grab your camera and run to the closest available vantage point. I was slow this time, but did capture a few shots from my backyard.
