After a long day of driving and shooting infrared photos I was finally on the road home. As I was driving south along NV-318 I could see the sky starting to show promise off to the west. As it developed I started getting desperate to find a place to pull over and get a shot. As luck would have it a nicely graded dirt road would appear and provide me with the perfect opportunity. After snapping what I felt were a good collection of shots I sat back and relaxed enjoying the sunset and nature that surrounded me. It was the perfect way to cap off my day.
As for the name, I had planned on naming this Fiery Tentacles. All the clouds look like tentacles reaching out. Then I noticed the shape of the darkest could in the center and how it reminded me of a crane’s neck. As I kept looking I then spotted a body and pair of wings and the name, Rise of the Phoenix, came to mind (map).
