Week 1 #36 Right Place At The Right Time



I stepped outside last evening when I began to hear thunder and watched the storm clouds gathering from the east. Hoping to get some good shots of the approaching storm to be used for one of the photo themes, I clicked away. I have never experimented with the manual setting so I just left it on the auto setting. Imagine my surprise when I was able to catch lighting deep in the thunder clouds. Thought this photo fit the theme to a T.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  4. This is spectacular. I hope you know, however, that stepping outside when you hear thunder is the exact opposite of what you should do when you hear thunder. Unless you have a camera at hand, of course!

  5. Photographers do the most dangerous things. Honestly, you should be inside when lighting is present, or at least that is what my Mother always told me. It’s sad that my Mother is no longer with me but, like you, I was outside Saturday night also trying to get lightning strikes. She would not have approved!! LOL

  14. Wow! Great shot. I love the colour and the light. We have had the tail end of ‘Hurricane Bertha’ here today. Not much thunder and nothing like yours. Well caught.
