Late August, 2013 Monsoon Storms

by John Farley

During the last half of August, the North American Monsoon was very active over northern New Mexico and southern Colorado, offering many photo ops for lightning and storm structure. Here are a few of my favorites from several different days during that period:

August 20, Near Nambe, NM

August 22, over the San Juan Mountains east of Pagosa Springs, CO

August 26, Sunlit Virga, Pagosa Springs, CO

August 27, Pagosa Springs, CO

August 28, east of Pagosa Springs, CO
