more from my trip to New Mexico, home of thunderstorms and brilliant orange sunsets.
It happens to be raining in sunny Union County.
Fence post, and observer, at sunset.
Orange skies are orange. I had not seen this sort of sunset since just after a thunderstorm in South Dakota in 2006!
Rain to our west, too. The only place it isn’t raining is right overhead!
Wide angle. I was too lazy to switch lenses (lest I miss something!) so I just took 7 photos and stitched them.
I turned this photo upside down for that extra otherworldly effect.
Spot where it was zoomed into.
Bright orange fades to purple, and I elegantly blow out the red channel on the camera.
Meanwhile, in the other direction, we have a lightning storm.
Silly lightning, you’re supposed to hit the highest point around!
And that’s about the absolute last of daylight.
coming up next – fireworks!
The fence post one is nice!
Dale liked that one when I showed him about 2 minutes after the fact 🙂
my favorite is the one right after because that was the peak of the crazy orange skies.
Great pictures as always… but several from these batch had lines going across the photos when you opened them separately…
Scrodhopper! I re-uploaded them so hopefully the large versions should be fixed now.
wow. are these all in union county new mexico? they are soooo beautiful. You do an awesome job.
