Everyone who knows me knows I love black and white photography. I’ll also admit to the tropes that a lot of the greats like Ansel Adams have inspired my photography and style. I know, soooooo cliche. But it is true. On my camera, the C2 custom function button is set to a monochrome live view […]
The monsoon has been a joy to photograph thus far this year, and my running joke continues to be that I will continue to mess up a lot this summer. While I had previous years where I spent a week or so in the southwest pursuing monsoon storms, this remains a new pattern for me […]
Well we’re in the thick of it now aren’t we? This weekend I spent quite a bit of time on the road pursuing monsoon storms across the state. I had some limited success getting some bolts Saturday but less so today. It’s hard to believe that the season is really only just beginning as I’ve […]
I wrote on Twitter earlier this week that I’d just really like to be pinched because the skies of New Mexico during the summer really are unbelievable. Finally, as we moved into July I got a chance to hit the road and do some photography of monsoon storms around the state. There’s still A LOT […]
Last night as outflow from storms in eastern New Mexico raced west — we saw dry showers and thunderstorms try to develop over the city of Albuquerque. Eventually, the lower atmosphere wet enough and we had some light rain in parts of the metro. But weather wise, yesterday was just a run of the mill […]

This Supercell formed in a pretty meager environment, but it really got its act together as it moved out onto the Plains. A left-split interacted with this supercell, resulting in a short-term favorable storm interaction and a possible tornado. […]
