A Sunday evening during the monsoon usually keeps me pretty busy at work, but on my dinner break, I elected to head out to the edge of the desert... just a few minutes from the studio to get some video for the 10PM show. I also brought along my camera to try and snag some lightning shots.
Big H5 high over the center of the country, nice fetch of moisture through the Rockies.
So, I sat out in the desert, hiding from the rain when I could... it seemed to want to sprinkle a lot.
The only bolt I captured... you have to look real closely to the right of the frame. (click to enlarge)
Nothing too exciting, just some pretty desert vistas.
