It was a rainy, stormy day with potential for even more rain and thunderstorms toward the evening, but that didn't deter the 2nd level Photography course students!    Several local photographers Johnny Trammel, Joe Donley and Wes Hallmark came along to partake in the Photography mayhem.

There's a beautiful dry rock bed deeper into the woods past several pasture clearings.  This is such a great area to photograph form and contrast.   The Parallel Forest, the dry rock river bed and the Elk calling in the distance created perfect moments to capture images.  

The storms were moving in quickly, so we decided to go to the top of Mount Scott and photograph the storm.  

It was a really GREAT field trip!   The Wichita Wildlife Refuge in Lawton, Oklahoma is a magnificent photography location!   The students had a lot of photo moments to capture.  

Thank you to the the 2nd level photography students for their enthusiasm.  I look forward to seeing the images you've captured.
