Mike Mezeul II took this incredible image of a storm in 2014 at White Sands National Monument. It’s a beautiful image that shows off the ferocity of nature.


Two cloud-to-ground lightning bolts strike down over the mountains near White Sands National Monument while the Milky Way shines above and moon rays streak out from behind the clouds.

It’s an incredible shot, and he’s taken a number of others, which you can check out his Instagram.
