Drive west on US Highway 50 out of Delta, Colorado heading toward Grand Junction. This drive offers very nice views of the high desert and Grand Mesa.
This is probably the only landscape I've ever captured with the camera on "automatic". The light was changing so fast. I stopped the lens down to f8, put the camera on the tripod and crossed my fingers. The exposure was about 5 seconds and I was lucky...or blessed depending on your point of view.
While trying to capture this unusual "red rain" photo at sunset I was blessed with a lightning strike during the exposure.
