I’ve really begun to enjoy posting images on Instagram and have also found many very talented young photographers in Texas that love to post their images as much as I do. One such is Rebecca (@becbaytx), a wonderful young artist from Orchard, Texas that loves to post cloudscapes and sunsets from the cotton fields surrounding this tiny town in Fort Bend County.

After viewing several of Rebecca’s gorgeous shots on Instagram I was inspired to visit the area a few weeks ago to see what I was missing and as you can see, the cloudscapes that develop over those cotton fields are a sight to see.

  1. Great shot, I love taking photos of clouds myself. I must have over a hundred shots.
    Thanks for posting

  2. Awesome shot! I don’t get to photograph cloudscapes often, I should follow your lead and start noticing them more. Thanks for the inspiration.
