However, I hate to leave you high and dry with nothing to look at, so here are some pictures of a storm that blew through here about a year ago. It actually went south of us - missed us completely - but the light show was incredible!
It started about 1:00 am last summer. My husband and I were on the deck talking about how clear the sky was. I decided to grab the camera and see if I could get pictures of the stars.
Add the missing star behind the cloud and you have the Big Dipper. :)
Then the clouds started getting in the way
And I noticed that they were moving a little too quickly for the long shutter speed.
So - I decided to try a side view instead....
The clouds were very cool... and hey, is that lightening??
Wow!! Yes it is!
Let's do it again!
Now, before you freak out, I have to tell you that this was so far away that we didn't hear thunder at all that night. Just so you don't worry. ;)
So what about a different angle... I moved the camera to look toward the right and...
I love the stars that are clear as a bell in the upper right there.
It was so cool! This went on for nearly 45 minutes.
And I was snapping away the whole time....
Y'All - I was jumping up and down when I captured this one. haha!
So much fun!
I'm just glad I didn't have to get up early the next morning.
Much love to all,
