Not much time today, so this will be a very short post. I am not a lightning shooter and did not make it out ONE TIME this summer to shoot any of the storms. This was how it went: Ring Ring Ring. ME: Hello. Oh what’s up Mike. MIKE: Dude, this storm is EPIC!!! Where are you? Get your ass out here. ME: No can do bro; got stuff going on. Next time. MIKE: But, dude… its seriously EPIC out here. Click. This conversation happened about 4,000 times this summer. However, I did manage to get a few shots on the early evening of September 9th.
The title “Lightning Strikes”, in addition to being totally original for a lightning image is also the title to a new Smashing Pumpkins song. They are currently on tour and I am so bummed I couldn’t catch either the LA or Vegas shows. Luckily, I can buy USB Drives with the mp3 files straight from the soundboard.
