Monsoon Morning for Skywatch

I wish that my photos could show the full magnificence of this rain shower falling in front of the Organ Mountains. It was pretty early in the day and I had to run to get these shots before the brief rainfall faded away.

For skies with all kinds of weather, be sure to visit Skywatch Friday.

Very nice !!!
(I got a sort of pic like that when we were driving through the sort of desert part of our state. Yours is better though ...)

Amazing photos and fascinating sky.
I love to watch summer storms but you have to move very fast to capture these images.

I love the sun rays in your photos. The rain looks like a veil over the mountains.

Expansive that is the way it is in New Mexico. I applaud your photographic talent.
