    Cool pics missmia:shock:! I like them all, but the lighting #5 is really neat, did you use a Led headlamp to light the wash? Are those stars in#6?

    I love all the pool shots. The lighter clouds off in the distance in the first one really draw your eye into the shot, as does the far-off rainfall in the second shot. And the lightning bolts in the next two are well captured.

    Hey, you're getting pretty good at these. Getting a lot of practice?

    Really like #2.

    I'm not wishing for monsoons, but we need the rain here too. Hopefully T.S. Fay will bring it for us.

    Thank you!

    It is shocking that I took these! :lmao: I had an led flashlight with me and tried my hand at light painting. Those are stars in #6.

    Thanks Anty! It was an unusual storm. The clouds were lit up with constant lightning but very few bolts. It was fun to watch the tiki torches - only one made it through the storm.

    Thank you!

    Thanks K! Just a little bit of practice. I've found with lightning photography, it's better to be lucky then good. :wink:

    Thanks!

    I am a fan of #4 as well. I like that you have 2 interesting photos in on, the lightning and the pool. I need to work on getting more interesting foregrounds in my lightning photos. I think the monsoons are about over in Tucson. Maybe next year. How many more day until it starts again?

    Thanks. I actually want to get more natural shots, but I've been to lazy to leave the backyard! :lol:

    Thank you!

    Thanks Thor! That's my pool! :mrgreen: A TPF pool party would be fun. The water is about 90 right now and it still feels cool compared to the air temperature.
