Not bad TB, not bad at all.
Thanks Nylon12. If I could use the darn phone camera thingy effectively, they would probably be even better.
We haven't had one yet this year but there is a forecast for one later next week. One of the main reasons I built a covered front porch when we did our home addition several years back was so that I could sit out there and watch a thunderstorm roll in while being able to stay dry.
Ed, we are fortunate in that our front porch is sufficiently sheltered to allow us to do the same thing - but more in the Summer. This one was a little cold to be out observing.
When I was a kid, you could see thunderstorms for miles. I remember moving the car into the front yard and laying on the hood to watch a big storm over Crosby county. My girl and I used to talk and watch the silent lightning for hours.
STxAR, one night when we were driving through New Mexico - an all night drive - we were in the pitch black and suddenly a thunderstorm started. It was so dark that when lightning went off, it literally lit up everything in a way I had never seen before.
Ooooh, a couple of those are really cool! Haven't seen any of those yet either. We sometimes see 'winter' one on occasion but nothing yet... rather see them now than late summer. ~hobo
Thanks Hobo! I can never time them right, so I just start shooting and hope for the best.Yes, I can imagine the late Summer ones are a lot less desirable.
Your comment will be posted after review. If you could take the time to be kind and not practice profanity, it would be appreciated. Thanks for posting!
