Lightning Strikes

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.

    Really well done. Makes me wonder if I went out too many times this summer. :-)
