Spanning the Skies

Uploaded: October 15, 2006


Here is another lightning photo from 10-2-06 taken from my driveway. I loved how the lightning crawled across the whole sky in this shot. I cant stop shooting lightning as each time its a challenge to get a better photo. Thanks for taking a look.

Thanks, Lightning has become a passion to photograph... possibly an obsession. Whenever I hear of a storm coming in I get both cameras mounted on tripods and wait for sight of approaching lightning. This past year I have over 50 quality images similar to this one, and thousands of blank sky shots while waiting to capture a bolt with an open shutter. #3563260
