December - snowflakes You are here: Home Photo gallery Lightning Lightning (2003) May 23, 2003


Another triumph for the best lightning coming from the least spectacular storms rule! This storm formed and dissipated in about 15 minutes, just to the north of Socorro, New Mexico. I almost missed it, but I heard thunder and went to my vantage point. It was still twilight and the exposure time was limited, but the lightning was easy to predict in time and location.
