This image was taken at sunset looking across what is normally the salt flat basin on the western side of the Guadalupe Mountain Range. A heavy rain in September caused severe flooding and the flood waters were still covering the salt flat basin in November. A cloud bank moved across the Range just as the sun set, providing beautiful red reflective coloring to the scene.
