With the warm weather comes the evening thunderstorms. Saturday was the first of the season. As I was sitting there watching the lightning and the wind roar; I thought it would be pretty cool if I could capture one of the bolts, so I set my camera up safely in my apartment and started shooting. I left the shutter open for 20 seconds on each shot and got some pretty cool results. I’m hooked! I can’t wait for the storms in July when it’s been about 100f and the sky turns into a strobe light.
I created a flickr set especially for the summer storms; here is the first storm. (1-10):
