it’s electrifying

The landscape in and around The Lightning Field is a varied mix of desert scrub, powdery soft – almost pulverized, really –  sand, and hard-baked patches of petrified earth. Spidery sections of cracked soil appear at random and seem so alien that it leaves me to wonder if lightning has at times avoided the lightning rods altogether, striking the ground instead – or if it’s some by-product of electrical strikes hitting the rods and the resultant run-off cooking the soil into unrecognizable – from my perspective – geometric patterns, like fractals.
