Slice of Sky

El Malpais National Monument, New Mexico

You can wander around the tops of the sandstone cliffs here and find lots of interesting compositions. The cliffs look out over the black basalt plains formed by ancient lava flows. But it's the skies here that really steal the show, generating the most interesting clouds, especially on this August afternoon with plenty of thunderstorms popping up in the distance.
