So this was the scene outside my front door last night. I was working when Jason came down and said I might want to go outside and take my camera. He was right. The skies were unreal; dark, menacing and gorgeous. I got it in my mind that I was somehow going to capture the lightning by handholding the camera. Wrong-O. There was no way to predict when it was going to hit and I have zero experience photographing lightning. I did somehow capture one tiny little blip of a bolt. I’ll definitely be trying this again, with more preparation, a tripod and skeeter spray… I got eaten up out there.
Here are a few of my favorites.
