New Lightning

I was finally able to get some lightning photos from this summer, and here's the first.
The orange light in the background is because the storm was towards Denver, so the city lights create that color in that part of the sky. It's not the cleanest because the photo is cropped, but it will have to do. It's for my favorite meme, Skywatch Friday.

  2. You know I love your lightning shots Al and I am so glad that this summer has yielded this beauty for you to photograph rather than just the fires.
    I also hope you have had some useful rain to start showing a little green in the burnt areas.

  6. Oh yes, I've missed your lightening..which I'd rather see on your blog than in real life, I must admit. Love the pale runners in the back of the main streak.
