Lightning Photography is Love

There’s something about photographing lightning that will always keep me coming back. Every strike is different. Every strike is random. Every strike is so exciting in its own way.

The Monsoon Had a Busy Week!

Whoa! What a week that just was. I am so far behind on processing timelapses and photos from several incredible storm days that it is going to take this entire week to catch up. BTW thanks to the monsoon for being active then taking a much deserved break to allow for me to catch up. […]

A Pretty Start to Monsoon Season (July 5-6, 2019)

I wrote on Twitter earlier this week that I’d just really like to be pinched because the skies of New Mexico during the summer really are unbelievable. Finally, as we moved into July I got a chance to hit the road and do some photography of monsoon storms around the state. There’s still A LOT […]

That Sunset Though…

Last night as outflow from storms in eastern New Mexico raced west — we saw dry showers and thunderstorms try to develop over the city of Albuquerque. Eventually, the lower atmosphere wet enough and we had some light rain in parts of the metro. But weather wise, yesterday was just a run of the mill […]
