I don’t even think we were supposed to get a storm last night but we did. I live up on the west side of our valley which gets about half the rain as the east but we get the better view. This was from a storm that went through the Mesilla Valley last night over looking Las Cruces, NM.

Wow! I lived in Albuquerque for a year and we used to see spectacular storms there.

We have been getting a couple a week for the last three weeks or so. They are spectacular to watch.
Albuquerque gets crazy storms like we do, great area.

I love to see that power. There’s nothing like watching a good thunderstorm.

The sound of the thunder rolling throught the valley was incredible. The smell of the electrity lingered for some time afterwards. Just an icredible display of nature.

I either set on bulb, or a long exposure time. No remote yet but I’m thinking I need one.

Thanks Neil and Dave. Really means a lot from all you guys.
I do enjoy taking pics. Watcking the fireworks from the sky is breath taking.
I about pee’d my pant one was so close.
