    A storm rolled throu about 1:00AM this morning. I was taking some moon shots at the time. Power went out for a couple of hours. Here's two, maybe more tomorrow and some associated questions.

    Very cool, kundalini. I think we had a storm roll through here about the same time last night. It thundered so loud without warning at one point that we about jumped out of our skin.

    I'm more drawn to the first one. It is so much more sinister. Your horizon looks a bit slanted to me though. Maybe rotate to the right just a tad.

    Great job though. I still don't understand how you guys time these shots.

    Nice catch kundalini! I also like the first one best, because you captured some of the storm structure and i feel it gives the shot balance.

    Both are beautiful shots, but I agree, the first one is my favorite as well.

    Thanks Ajay, BoblyBill, Lyncca, tedE, Fow Paw & MissMia for taking the time and commenting.

    Here's a few more that I have processed. Bear in mind that I had some technical issues that I have asked for help here, like color banding and noise. There may be some doubling up of images, but for different reasons.

    The shelf cloud (??) was very ominous looking in the flesh. The various colors that the sky went through was quite spiritual. The warm breeze to begin with in the far distance, intensifying to the storm that it became.

    With the last shot, that was a sign to get my a$$ inside. You can't see the bolt because it's right over my friggin' head. You can see see the raindrops hitting the lens even though I was (trying) to hold an umbrella over the gear. That shot was taken at 1:20AM. Looks like daytime doesn't it?

    Thanks for looking.

    That last shot is really cool, but not worth risking your life over!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Cool. I, too, really like the last shot.. atleast your gear survived to tell the tale, and, of course, yourself! lol


    (Off Topic: MissMia, your Avatar reminds me a lot of someone i can't put my finger on.. a musician i think, can't decide who, Cat Power i'm thinking?!..)

    Thanks! It's just one of my many attempts at a self portrait. Most of them don't turn out very well, but I kind of liked this one. BTW - I love her song "Willie".

    Now back to Kundalini's lightning photos! :wink:
