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 websites at www.mcgino.com or www.inlightfulimages.com Thanks for looking! Colleen

Caption: This area, called The Box, is a few miles west of Socorro and is a favorite destination for rock climbers. This was rather a lucky shot, because the rock face was lit by some very bright bolts of lightning, otherwise it would have been almost pitch black even in this 30 second exposure. The partly cloudy skies were lovely, and the occasional lightning a treat.
