Within 20 minutes of when this was taken, we were taking cover from thunderstorms. From the shelter of the petroglyph museum, we saw lightning strike several times within hundreds of feet of where we had been standing.

WOW! As I type there are four thousand three hundred and fifty three views to this image. And not one of the miserable gits could offer to comment!

I like this shot, Austin. The minimal ground interest with plenty going on in the heavens! Aye, ready to drench your camera, I don't doubt! Sounds as though you had a lucky escape!

Great shot, not nearly appreciated as much as it should be!

Ṩigh, I don't get upset about people not commenting. I think part of the reason it has so many views is that it is in a very rural area and for a long time was the only photo for 50 miles (80 km) in any direction. People looked at it because it was there, not because it was spectacular (although I do like it).

What does surpise me is that nobody pointed out that I had misspelled prairie in the title (now fixed).
