Polvadera, NM (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: A fairly active thunderstorm blew in from the southwest at about 5-ish this evening. I got a few good lightning shots before the rain hit. This is a composite of 5 images, I ran in front of the camera for one as you can see. I'm guessing the closest strike was about a mile away.

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).
