Prepping my next project: Yoga with Orada

Norm on Hill (Matador): f/4.5 , 1/125, iso 160, 24mm
round hay things = bales: f/16, 1/200, iso 125

research for our yoga shoot: beautiful Thai yoga poses
My Thai friend / yogi Orada sent me information about a photo competition in Yoga Journal.
We're going to try some shoots this weekend. So, I've been trying to do some research on how to go about doing this. Orada sent me some pictures from her Thai yoga book which I think are beautiful.
The biggest challenge is the location. We don't have time to go out far, so it will have to be some place in Lubbock that's not brown, or just completely make peace with the fact that everything is brown around here this time. 
There's Norman on one of the strange hills in Matador. We took this one at sunset. You can see some of the burn. That's really nothing. Don't know how those hills became. That area used to have a fence around it, but it was all burned so we just walked up the hill. It was freezing.
The hay bales are also from Matador. I always  wanted to take a picture of one of those. On this one,  I practiced how to use a small aperture on this one so I could get lots of depth.
