Sick Day Special~Lightning!

Lightning Over Kansas

I’m battling the cold virus from h#$! so just a quick and easy one today.  I’ve had some success over the years in photographing lightning, in fact I have a couple of images on slides that I am pretty proud of (different than the previously posted windmill shot)  but never have gotten a decent scan from those.   I offer instead this more modern take.   Sure, the whole windswept prairie, windmill in the foreground  thing makes a good photo, but if that’s not practical there’s always your front porch.   That’s where this was taken, my front porch.    Click on the image for the super spectacular ginormous version.  Hope everyone is having a good Friday.

    That’s a spectacular shot, Charles! I have never had any luck shooting lightning. It takes a lot of patience and understanding to get shots like this.
