I’ve always wanted to get a photography like this (a road leading off into the distance). This isn’t quite what I had in mind, but its close. Captured in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge near Lawton OK.
Oklahoma isn’t known for ‘mountains’ but there are a few areas in the state that are actually quite hilly and – officially – called mountains. The Wichita Mountains are in the Southwest portion of the state near Lawton Oklahoma. Within this range is the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge run by the US Fish & Wildlife Service.
My wife and I took at trip down there recently on a scouting trip. I had been down to the area when I was nine or ten but hadn’t been back since and she’d never been so we played hooky one day and drove down to see what it was all about.
Earlier this year, I made a trip out to Sedona Arizona. I hadn’t been out there before and didn’t have a lot of time to spend in the field with my camera, but I made a few good photographs. Here’s one of them.
