Sky Grids

During a seven-week stay in the Mojave Desert, a simple pergola defined the entrance to my cabin where the open sky provided an endless and fascinating view.  I set up a camera to frame this scene in the overhead grid. From dawn to dusk, on rainy days, or under the scorching sun, the sky changed constantly. A large wildfire 20 miles away overwhelmed ordinary colors at times, and contrails pointing to and from Los Angeles added a linear element. The most compelling colors and patterns I found make up this collection of images which combine the straight, regimented grid with the wild, ephemeral flow of the clouds.
