August 20, 2023 (San Diego’s East County) –Michael Adam Cohen, award-winning entertainment reporter and photographer, shot these surreal images of a lightning storm over Cowles Mountain, as Tropical Storm Hilary drenched our region.
The first image, viewed from Mt. Helix, makes Cowles Mountain appear to be an island floating in a foggy sea. In reality, those are clouds obscuring Interstate 8.
The second images shows multilpe lightning bolts creating a dramatic light show in the skies above Cowles Mountain, which is located in Mission Trails Regional Park in San Diego.
