In the summer of 2014, I took a class from my very good friend Brett Erickson at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops; I struggled quite a bit during the week, and one morning was ready to put my cameras away forever because I was so frustrated. But, I’d already paid for the class, so I stuck it out. I’m frugal like that.
That evening, our plan was to shoot at a place near Abiquiu, New Mexico, but a huge thunderstorm thwarted those plans. The reasonable members of the class returned to Santa Fe. But Brett and four students decided the thing to do was to go higher into the mountains, and closer to the storm, so he could show us how to shoot lightning.
Safe, right? (Brett’s a lot taller than I am, so I figured…well, you know. Fortunately all of us returned safely to Santa Fe.)
Anyway, I just found out that my favorite lightning image from that wonderful night of shooting was accepted into the online gallery for PhotoPlace Gallery’s Landscape: Earth and Sky show. You can see it the entire show here.
And you can see my image here:
