Chasing the storm really paid off with a great light show and photos I'd been waiting a long time for! If you don't get struck by lightening, thunderstorms are amazing! This is Bodie Island Light and I was shooting bulb exposures ( an old photo term meaning I held the shutter open until I either got a good lightening flash or I thought I was overexposed and ended the exposure). I shot for 45 minutes or more. There were two photographer friends there too, so we talked as we shot, and had a great time. It was kind of like standing around a bonfire, only the fire was in the sky.
I hope you enjoy it,
