If it doesn't stick you, sting you, or bite you, then it must be a rock.

East Texan, can you set up a class in BB sometime and teach the rest of us mortals to take such amazing pics?  That would be awesome.

I'd have loved to see such a beautiful sight.  Either one would take my breath away.

Thanks everyone, I'll get one in the gallery.  What size do I need Richard?

Cactus Flower:  Send gas money and I'll be there! :icon_wink:

Would anyone like to have a 24 x 36 print of it?  I have a 77.7 megapixel file at 300 dpi which will give an excellent image at 24 x 36!

The file size is 444.9 mb if anyone wants to down load it let me know.   :eusa_doh:

Just one more before the rainy season ends.... This is a double, time exposure.  It was taken at the amphitheater in the Basin. I followed the storm from the west at the Window, all the way around the south to the east where it scared the bajeebers off of anything on Casa Grande that evening.  Actually I didn't get much sleep that night either.  This one is also posted in the gallery.
