Desert Storms by John  De Bord Photography

Currently unavailable for purchase

As the sun sets against the Sandia Range outside of Albuquerque New Mexico, the light was just amazing, with the storms coming in and the color changing almost every second, I set up my tripod and had at it…I really wanted an image that conveyed a sense of high drama and showcased the light for what it was, so I sat and thought to myself and said “What if Ansel Adams was shooting this, what would he do??” and wallah, this is how it translated.

Thoughts welcomed!

I am a photographer based in the beautiful state of Colorado who focuses on nature, retro and country lifestyle images on my wonderful state! I have been shooting since the middle 1980s and my adventures have taken me all over. I am grateful for where I live and consider myself fortunate.Join me on my photographic journey to show you that beauty still exists in the world.

    excellente John… When my first photography partner and I would go out into the wilderness we would always find compositions that some would consider dangerous and we would always say, “Thats what Galen would do,” or “that what Ansel would do.”
