Fiery Skies

Uploaded by: mcgino

Sunday August 4, 2013

Socorro, NM (Current Weather Conditions)

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.
