I noticed just a couple of thunderheads when I was up at the horse ranch yesterday. Just two peeking over the mountains nearby...By the time I was driving down the mountain, from the ranch to the desert, through the pinyon forest, more had developed. NOBODY was on the road, so I was able (for once) to stop and take photos mid-road. I sometimes do that if there is no traffic and I have my camera right beside me. It was so quiet yesterday (I'm not sure why...) that I was able to get photos in places that I normally just zip by (like this one). By the time I got to the desert, the sky was clouding up and we had a thunderstorm by 11:30 a.m., which is very early in the day for us. No rain, just a lot of thunder.
