After a couple of extremely hot days...

Finally after a couple of days with some extreme temperatures we got the storm that was bound to come around.
Given our location most of it just passed us as usual but I did manage to get just a few photos as it was almost right above us.

I must admit I totally forgot all about which settings are best for lightning but finally it was while it was dark outside so I didn't have to deal with daylight. However the difference between a pitch black sky and a lightning bolt is quite big so it's all about guessing....

Here we go... warming up



Now we are almost there. This is getting interesting :-)



There you have it... it was within a couple of miles so very bright and sorry you have to miss the sound on it... it was goooood...



Last one that got captured (man you should have seen the one that got away). Boom bang and all that good stuff.



Now if only we didn't have all these trees around us... that would be much better but hey. Just wanted to share a few from this nights storm (well it was brief and not really that stormy but loud).

Nice pics, I suppose for these timing is everything.

Unfortunatly, we only got "sheet lightning" here with some petty pitiful thundersorms lete last night.

We're feeling kind left out of all the fun. :(

I might just be crazy who knows (no nobody *really* have to reply on that one) but I get kind of excited when seeing stuff like that :-)

The downside is that if the powers are unleashed on the wrong spot it can be kind of bad.

But thunderstorms like are amazing. Just the sheer power in these are ... yeah amazing...

I guess the local news show photos every now and then. But even managing to get a few on my blog is an achievement sooo you now getting around to getting the photos done that same day and send to different people that may be interested...
