'What the camera didn't capture, my grateful eyes did --- '

Image © 2012, Karla Dorman

His timing and mine
a little off:  eight
seconds, the shutter
was open as I
tried to capture His

signature in the
skies.  He'd wait until
it closed and then would
sign His name with a
flourish and I could

do nothing but wait ---
not complaining.  What
a display of His
power.  It just kept
on, one flash after

another --- the whole
southern horizon
lit up in a show
I won't soon forget.
What the camera

didn't capture, my
grateful eyes did --- thank
God for digital
and the memories
of nighttime lightning.

When “he” does it on Jupiter, the flash lasts for months and can be easily photographed if the extreme gravity does not bend the light waves too much.

Great descriptive write, Karen. Well done.

Beautiful write and capture; at least you got some. Better than NONE, I always say! Well done!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :D

One day you WILL get some awesome CG's and anvil crawlers. You WILL; I promise you that! :)
