February - halos You are here: Home Photo gallery Lightning Lightning (2003) July 10, 2003

This daytime (afternoon) monsoon storm over Socorro, New Mexico, had nice multistroked cloud to ground lightning, and little rainfall. That changed, though, when it went further south and transformed into a small squall over the Bosque del Apache wildlife refugee. By that time I had come too close to the storm and I was in the middle of heavy rainfall with lightning striking at many places around me, and it was difficult to get some lightning on film. After that, I had to give up chasing due to the terrain - there were no good roads.
