I saw a storm in 2020!

Hold the phones, let’s break the news, I finally saw a storm in 2020 on purpose! While I doubted myself the whole way because moisture was just so bad, I still made the trek on Sunday to NE New Mexico for some proper social isolation and storm photography. Initially the sky was quite murky and […]

It snowed in April and I didn’t mind it!

Snowscapes in Tijeras Canyon, New Mexico | 4/13/20 I am going to come clean and say the last couple of weeks have been pretty difficult for me.

Making it work…

It’s never been a typical occurence for me to not be feeling well at the same time storms are happening. As with most people, the spring and summer months are a time when I’m not usually dealing with sickness in any way and that means I’m usually feeling great unless I’m just incredibly fatigued from […]

A few lightning bolts for your enjoyment…

Let’s keep this one quick and simple: there’s been a pretty fruitful period of lightning in the region! I’ve had a few good days in a row in New Mexico and I’m gearing up for yet another today. As I wrote in “Lessons Learned” I have been learning A LOT about this pattern and how […]
