Storm at dusk, Chupedera Mesa, New Mexico, 1974

©1974 Joseph Matthews
A fast moving storm just after sunset offered a unique challenge. I couldn't leave the shutter open and wait for the strikes since there was still too much ambient light. I triggered it as if it was a daytime shot and kept the lens open to make the full exposure. The high wind speed is evident in the cloud's motion during the exposure.

Nikon F, 35mm, Kodachrome II, ƒ8, 30 seconds exposure
