Distant Storm

Uploaded by: mcgino

Saturday August 17, 2013

Polvadera, NM (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: The storm to the east was very active but unfortunately too distant to get much detail with the 50mm lens I was using (this has been cropped quite a bit). This is a 20 second exposure at f/2.5 ISO 100. I have about 300 images taken from about 8:30 to 10:00 PM that I'll make into a time lapse movie and post it later...

About mcgino


As a former astronomer I am an avid sky watcher. I have lived in New Mexico for a dozen years and am constantly amazed by the beautiful skies. My favorite subjects to photograph are the skies of course, cats (I rescue strays), and robots (I have a HUGE collection). If you would like to see more photographs of any of the above be sure to visit my photo galleries at www.flickr.com/inlightful or www.inlightfulimages.com Thanks for looking! Colleen
