Thunderstorm Yesterday

I was riding my bike down a large hill towards Walmart near my home in Rio Rancho, NM, and saw a storm moving over the Sandia Mountains, right around sundown. I skipped going to Walmart, and rode my bike back up the hill as quickly as possible so that I could get my camera and take some photos. My legs are sorry I did this, but the storm was worth seeing.

I missed the storm at sundown, but a few minutes later, this is what I saw:

I also took several lightning photos, with this one being the best:

and this one being mediocre, but you can see that there were multiple strokes to roughly the same spot, across three different paths.

Thank you for reading my post!
