April 2014

Sunset on the Chisos Mountains from Cattail Falls Road

This trip to Big Bend was taken April 22-28, 2014. An extra couple of days allowed time to explore the River Road, along the south edge of the park by Jeep.

This year was unusual in two respects. There were a huge number of wildflowers in bloom, more than I have seen in my years visiting the park. And it was very windy every day. 

I used a Nikon D300S camera and three different lenses: a Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 lens for wide angle and nighttime photos; a Nikkor AF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens, and a Nikkor-Micro 70-180mm f/4.5-5.6 macro lens for the wildflower shots.

You can see the growing collection of Big Bend wildflowers here.
