The Best Of Whats Around II (2019)

Denver City Texas Permian Basin

The Best Of Whats Around II features a pump jack and battery on an old stripper well on the open plains Northwest of Denver City Texas. The backdrop is a line of cumulus clouds comprising a feeder band being pulled into a severe thunderstorm just North of the Location. The storm formed along the dry line which is the boundary between moist air in Central Texas and very dry cooler air in Western Texas and New Mexico. The photograph was taken with a tilt shift lens. This lens provides near perfect focus in all areas of the image from front to rear.
