And here I said I would NEVER chase storms. LOL Never say never. Now will I chase tornadoes? NAH. At least, not yet ...
off in the distance
the dark suddenly lit up
with a bolt of light --
deleted much more than i
kept, worth it because
i captured lightning
for the very first time! more
storms in the forecast.
i'll be out there, with
camera in hand, taking
pics of God's beauty. :)

You are a master at capturing these storms in words. The suspense, the way they start and end. They are "God's beauty" no matter what they do.
You also are a master at capturing them in your lens.

|Great picture and pen Karla. My sons and I love watching lightning no matter how close it is. You have to be quick to capture it with a camera. I tried and finally gave up. Enjoyed|

|Love the photo. I captured lightning on a video once, and when we played it in slow motion, the colors were awesome.
GREAT write, my sha....and you're not losing anyone. There's just not enough time, to do all we want to do.

|Cool pic Karla!
I once was in a lightening storm on a long and desolate highway...alone! The bolts were all around me! I didn't have a camera but the vision is implanted in my head...it was beautiful!
But, I must be honest...I was alittle frightened! Keep your distance and stay away from puddles!
Smiles to you!
Love and PEace~

|Brilliant shot. I once did the same as a kid, as the lightning hit the sea, with a lonely boat on the sand. Zuess must think he's getting slow..|
