Lightning

We had a great thunderstorm roll through the Twin Cities last evening. I hadn't realized there was so much lightning that went along with this storm before the rain hit.

I must have missed 20 minutes of photo taking before I started shooting. This one was the best of the crop with a couple of okay shots at the end of the text. Unfortunately, the shooting location was my driveway, but I wasn't sure how much time I had before the rain would start. So stayed where I was and made the best of it. After about 10-12 minutes, I had to retreat to my garage as the skies opened and I had to protect my camera.

Even without rain yet, I don't think I'd have the guts to stay outside during a lightning storm!

Love that first photo with the purple sky.

I tried doing this last night but failed miserably. I don;t think I had the camera set correctly. Very nice pics.

I'm not a photographer; however, I was hoping someone had great shots of last night. It was so lovely.

Rather odd that June is half over and this was all but our first thunderstorm of mention.

We're having an informal Twin Cities photo-blogging get together photo-shoot on June 26th at St. Anthony Main area. We'll meet somewhere in the area from 3:00 to 7:00. This way it's a flexible get together to allow for work, dinner, and wandering around.

If your interested, let me or Mitch at Mitchster know and we'll exchange cell numbers. That's exchange cell numbers with you. (Mitch and I already have each others numbers). That way we an pin point with where we we are exactly to meet up.

Don't worry, there is no specific schedules, rules, or criteria. Hope to see you there.
