<i>Lightning Strikes</i>

Lightning dances along the Black Mountains west of Golden Valley earlier this week.

The view west along state Highway 68 from central Golden Valley was shot with a Canon Elan 7 camera and Canon 75-210 millimeter lens open for three minutes with an aperture setting of 5.6.

Photographer Mario Ramirez of Golden Valley said he used Kodak 200 ASA film.
