This picture was taken off route 40 in New Mexico. As I planed my trip to New Mexico last Spring I knew I wanted to take this picture. After looking at google maps I was able to pick the spot I needed to be at. I realized I would need my 70-200mm lens to accomplish it. So after thinking about the pros and cons of carrying a heavy expensive lens around I came to the realization nothing else I had would work. I took the picture with the Idea I may need to crop it the way I did. The cloud gods were not with me so I needed to isolate the sky out of it.
