Santa Rosa Storm

Uploaded: August 07, 2007


...storm brewing over Santa Rosa Lake, New Mexico. I used a diffused flash to light the tree; the lightning was pretty much dumb luck.

Love the dramatic, moody feel. Flash on the tree was a great idea and the lightning was a happy accident-frosting on the cake, so to speak! Hope this does well! #4618995
