While driving across Eastern New Mexico on HWY 58 late on a Summer's day around sunset, I told my wife I was thinking about stopping and setting up the tripod to take some lightning shots. She bet me she could take catch the lightning while I drove down the highway without a tripod. She won the bet after only 6 attempts. While the shot is not admittedly not that spectacular, it will always remind me of my wife's true grit to prove me wrong once again. :-)
