Scene

Simply felt like a scene out of the movies.  I’m in a big, overgrown field (alone), photographing the landscape and out of nowehere the massive lightning storm erupts before me.  And just like in the movies, I’m telling myself “I gotta shoot this.  Just 5 more minutes.”  Have I not watched enought TV and movies to know better!!!

Luck

I completely stand behind my statement that I tell a lot of people about my photography.  There’s certainly a lot of luck involved.  Right time, right place.  As I gain experience, though, it’s becoming easier to be in that right place at that right time.

The Storm

As the double rainbow was strengthening, I was able to spin it around and catch the lightning! | Order a print of this image.

Collection

How did we get so much stuff?!  Where does it all come from?!  I’ve been a little distracted lately as we move into a new home and deal with the enormous collection of stuff we’ve managed to cram into our house!  I had to take a break from the move recently and get back into shooting.  The new office space is coming together quite nicely though.  Perhaps I’ll share some images soon.

Light Show

So, it’s been quite a while since I’ve actually been at home for the 4th of July.  I completely forgot that the fireworks were set off last night.  Oh well.  No biggie.

I posted an image previously from this lightning storm, but this was what was happening over the ocean in the other direction.  Pretty crazy considering that this was taken between 10 and 11 pm.  Our own little pre-4th fireworks show.

This Sucker’s Electrical!

“No, no, no, no, no, this sucker’s electrical, but I need a nuclear reaction to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity I need.”

– Dr. Emmett Brown


I think Doc Brown would have been all set for a few more trips in his time machine after last night’s storms!  I wonder how many gigawatts were generated from this one.

I give you 1.21 gigawatts! | Order a print of this image.

Right Place/Right Time

– Ansel Adams


Storms always provide some great image opportunities.  Of course, they present a good deal of danger as well.
