Monsoon, San Cristobal Valley. Before the unleashing and the lightning strike that made my hair stand on end. It was quite a downpour that followed and there is a large waterfall in the Rio Grande Gorge in this same spot where I shot this image in 2008. Monsoon season has been on again off again, but todays storm made up for it. Thanks for looking. G

Mammatus Clouds Over The Taos Valley

Mammatus clouds over the Taos Valley. A drive by iPhone pano out the window of an afternoon thunder storm bringing hail to some elevations and rain to most places. It was great to see so much standing water where we haven’t seen any for a long time. I left some raw steel for an art project out in the heavy rains and hail to rust. Looking forward to the results tomorrow. In case your wondering, I did make a high resolution panorama of this scene. It will take a little work to put it together matching pixels in the cloud formations. Thanks for looking. G
