I took this photo during a phenomenal thunderstorm that rolled through Albuquerque, NM. It was a little nerve racking standing near my camera & tripod with lightning hitting so close, but it was well worth it!!
Foreground lighting came from a nearby park behind me.
Nikon D300s + Tokina 11-16mm
total exposure time 30 seconds

*** Honored to have my first DD :D ***
*** Thank you all so much ***

Amazing shot. Interesting how New Mexico, regardless of the temperature of the state, always produces spectacular scenery
