Evening Storm, Alabama Hills – Lone Pine, CA

This photo was taken in a small canyon off of “Movie Flat Road” that has been called  the “Cattle Pocket”. The area was used as an overnight pen for the cattle and horses used in old westerns filmed in the Alabama Hills, and was also used as a location for many films, including “Seven Men From Now”, one of Randolph Scott’s classic films.

The threatening sky from what turned out to be a wet summer in the Eastern Sierra set off the shape of the rocks, and begged me to photograph them.
