long exposure lightning at night hermosillo mexico Picture of the Day: Lightning Crashes


In this 30 second long exposure photograph by José Eugenio Gómez Rodríguez, we see multiple lightning strikes just outside the city limits of Hermosillo, located in the northwestern state of Sonora, Mexico. Hermosillo is the capital and main economic center for the state and region. It contains almost all of the state’s manufacturing and has thirty percent of its population.

The photograph was taken back in October of 2008 with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi (30 sec/ƒ 7.1/ISO 200/22 mm).

Lightning Crashes” is a song by the rock band Live, from their 1994 album, Throwing Copper.
