Tuesday - September 30, 2008



I'm sure it's no surprise to anyone who knows me that I'd have to include a photo of the Very Large Array from my vacation. Right? Right. What reasonable person could drive by such a site and not stop to take a photo? No need to reply. 'Round these parts, that's what we call a rhetorical question.

Cool cloud formation

Another vacation photo...


What do you think of that cloud? An anvil? The boot that the lady and all those kids lived in? Hmmmm.

By the way, I took this photo along Highway 60 west of Magdalena on the 5th day of my vacation last month.

UPDATE. I take it back. I was east of Magdalena when I took this photo. Oops. That's what happens when you take more than a month to go over your photos. Ah well. I guess that's life.

More Albuquerque lightning

I'm not really sure what happened but I hit some sort of wall as I was posting photos from my vacation. I caught up to the set of lightning photos (here's a link to the story about the night I took them) and I guess I was overwhelmed by the large number of photos. There really weren't many shots with lightning in them...maybe 12 or 15. In most of those, the lightning was off to the side or barely visible. But, I looked through 'em and found a few more keepers. At the end of the night, I thought I'd only gotten one decent shot. But, that proved not to be the case. And, so...4 more lightning photos:

There's really not much lightning in that last shot above. But, the clouds look awfully impressive. Doncha think?

We're really busy at work and I've been working long hours. I'll try to post more vacation photos soon but can make no promises.
