New Mexico True Rural Land Photography Riders on the Stormy Skies

Facing the storm to get the photograph in Sandoval County New Mexico - Nikon D750 with Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 SP lens 5-bracket HDR tripod mounted and processed in Aurora HDR 2018

Going through my recent rural land photography archives while out in remote places in New Mexico, I was reminded of being brushed by a strong thunderstorm.  It does not rain often in the winter in the greater Albuquerque area of New Mexico, much less a thunderstorm.  Thus, my surprise at having to stay close to my Jeep Renegade Trailhawk in case a deluge broke from the sky or lightning started striking the ground.  

Only a few rain drops ended up falling, and I was able to make this dramatic cloudy sky photo.  For me, I like the contrast in the bumpy clouds top with the vertical whips clouds at the horizon.  I stared at this stormy sky as I felt the atmospheric pressure and ambient temperature drop.
