New Year's Day Ice Storm, Alpine, TX

Driving back to Houston from Marfa, we passed through an ice storm in Alpine. I had to stop and photograph it. It was New Year's Day. Marfa was sunny and 26 miles east, Alpine was a frozen tundra. It's what I love about Far West Texas. If you want some place warm, head south; cool go north.

Tonia + Thayer, The Gage Hotel, Marathon, TX

One of my favorite places on Earth is The Gage Hotel. And there is no better place to shoot a wedding, let alone have one. Tonia and Thayer created a lovely weekend for friends and family who were able share in the great beauty of West Texas. Thayer hired a bus to transport people around the area which included Marfa, Big Bend National Park...I'm not sure if they made it to the Observatory because of a surprise arctic front. You can never predict the weather in West Texas. What you can predict is that whatever weather comes through won't last more than 3-days. It's one of the many things I love about West Texas besides photographing people there.
