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.

Nice picture but lets be realistic, this is NOT a photo taken by anyone. It’s a Photoshop job splicing together several images. Bugs me when images are put up but make make it seem the photogragper is some kind of magician and captured the “image” and people believe it. I’m not for a second trying to belittle the skill it took to put this together, but please dont mislead the audience.
