DescriptionA storm system rolls over the broad plain of Oregon's high desert country: the Dust Devil sunstone mining community near Plush, Oregon. Clouds in the vastness of the desert fascinate me; they seem so far away yet so huge that scale is impossible to wrap my mind around. When they're moving as quickly as these were, the feeling of being a very small part of a massive world is inescapable.
