Lightning 1

During the monsoon season (July-September) in Albuquerque, we often have clear sunny days followed by thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening.  Many include  beautiful, and dangerous, electrical storms.  It’s hard to get a good picture of lightning though — it never seems to happen where you’re looking, while you’re waiting for it.  Over the course of 3 nights in August 2003 I shot about 1000 frames and got a couple of nice lightning photos, including this one.
