On a trip to Australia in October, I stopped for a few days in New Zealand and took the ferry over to Waiheke Island. Early spring in the Auckland area is fantastic for photography- passing rain storms, moody clouds, and some sunshine. I loved it and would love to go back.

Last July, I had the pleasure of seeing this spectacular thunderstorm roll over the Sandia Mountains while I was back in New Mexico for a conference. I pulled off NM SR556 to shoot a few single frame photographs and panoramas of the passing rainstorm as it dumped precipitation on Placitas.
