There's a crack in the ceiling, Bitsy!
Good one. If you view this full size, you can see the braches of the lightning all over the sky.
Thanks Norrel! and you inspired me to change the title!
This was the prettiest lightning storm I think I've ever seen. Sooo frustrating that this was the only bolt I caught. There was a lot of lightning running along the bottom of that low cloud, branching out and ending in little sparkler-like flares. Loads of people caught the storm with their cell phone cameras. But me? only this one shot!
Bits have no fear your not the only one of a whole storm i got nothing, somebody does not like me. what a great shot up big, ears still ringing. steve
Take a pat on the back for using a proper camera rather than a phone camera.
Thanks Steve and geomancer! It's nice to have pride in not using a cell phone, but all those people who did have tons of shots, and their photos are on all the news stations and all over the web! LOL, the problem with trying to do things right!
Thanks Ippa - It was a really cool storm! But the lightning was so close along the underside of all the clouds, Dianne wouldn't have been safe even under the bed!
Cracker of a shot Bits.
Thanks Guy! After hearing the big boom of thunder, I knew just when to click to get the flash of light!
Hey! I wasn't born yesterday you know!
Your lightning goes up! That's a pretty cool shot, Bits. You are now on my preferred list.
Lovely capture Bits - stunning light and perfect moment :))
Many thanks to you very muchly for the honor of being on you preferred list Mr. Word! yeah - it was a strange storm. The lightning was from the low clouds - either running along the bottom of the clouds, or shooting up. It was sure fun to watch!
Thanks so much Amelia! I wish all thunderstorms were like this one. Dry until the gust front gets to you, low, and as you can see from the sunset sky visible through the rain, fairly brief!
I did Vote even though I hopped under the bed when I first saw it. :)
Thanks Dianne! We'll get you out there being a storm chaser yet!
You have another vote. Now come on Diane, get out from under the bed :))
Amazing capture, VOTED!
LOL Amelia! Isn't it funny how Dianne would rather risk being a snack for all the monsters under the bed than be in a nice safe car watching a great storm? Thanks for the Vote!
And many thanks for your votes and nice comment tu-quoque and Marco!
