Lightning Over Wickenburg

Last night there were some amazing storms which mostly skirted the Wickenburg area, but one passing south had more lightning, even noticeable at barely dusk, than I’d ever seen. About 90% of the time, I could not count even one second between flashes and rain-attenuated flickers. Its distant thunder for quite a while was unabated rumbling. It reminded me of several years ago when some friends and I flew to the epicenter of the Landers earthquake, NW of Palm Springs. You could sit on the ground and between distinct aftershocks, the ground was in jello-like nonstop gentle motion — more a sensation of something man-made than from mother nature.

Anyway, this shot was from a far less active cell to the NW of Wickenburg just after sunset. It’s a bit blurry, but not bad considering no tripod. Thought you might get a kick out of it as I did.

    Very nice shot. I too enjoy taking my camera out at dusk and dawn and especially rain/thunderstorms. Keep up the good work. Chris
