Summer Storms

Ever try to photograph lightning? Not easy my friends…

Well it wasn’t for me anyway, even with lightning striking every few seconds. I took thousands a bunch and only caught it twice. It’s been a stormy week here in the desert and for once I have really enjoyed the weather. We’ve had thunderstorms and rain most nights, and then we wake up to blue skies and amazing clouds…

I believe that if one always looked at the skies, one would end up with wings.

    K-Thanks! Seems like I can’t get enough sky pictures lately. šŸ™‚

  4. Lightning is one the things on my list. I tried when I was a young teen- I tried setting my camera with the aperature (sp?) open for an extended period… but I guess it never struck during that time.

    Your shot is super cool, great colors! I’m jealous

    K-Aww, thanks! I’m glad I caught the colors. It was getting pretty dark, but I’m really pleased with how it turned out. (even with my non-manual point and shoot!) šŸ™‚

    beautiful photos!! love those storms…a good thunderstorm does wonders for the soul, yes? šŸ™‚

    K-Yes! I’ve been drinking it all in… šŸ™‚

  6. we also had tons of lightening the other night. Unfortunately I was driving to work and trying not to get struck, but wishing I was at home snapping away.

    great catches!

    K-I had my family with me at the park, probably not a great idea, but it was far enough away! šŸ˜‰

  7. You take some really great pictures. You must have been born with a camera in your hand! šŸ˜‰

    K-lol! Oh, thank you! Started in high school and a little of college, and am just barely trying it out again. Pretty sure I won’t stop taking pictures anytime soon! šŸ™‚

    K-You got it! I’ll send them as soon as my niece and nephew’s soccer games are over! šŸ™‚

  9. Great lightening picture!! I’ve never even tried to do that.

  10. WOW! Those are a fabulous shots! I have tried shooting lightening. I have never been successful outdoors. LOVE those fluffy clouds šŸ™‚

    The pics are UBER cool. Have you got any filters on for the blue sky one ?? Thats SOOOOO Blue !!! LOL. I really must learn how to use my camera properly…

    K-The trick is to take pictures on stormy or cloudy days…natural filters! So glad you liked these. I really should read my manual too, I’m sure it would help! šŸ˜‰

  13. Both are awesome pictures, no doubt! šŸ™‚

    K-Thank you!
