  6. You get a lot of lightning shots. Hm... It's dangerous to hike with you since you are prone to lightning :-)

    Beautiful capture. Thanks for sharing

  18. the thing that always "strikes" me in your lightning photos Al is how much at the mercy of the elements the little houses seem.

  19. Hi Al,
    in questo momento l'Italia è coperta di neve.
    L'Italia è una nazione dove cade molta neve in genere a Nord... dove vivo io però, al centro Italia, la neve in città la vediamo generalmente nel periodo di Natale, come adesso.... e la quantità che cade è come nella foto che ho inserito... poca, ma in genere a gli abitanti causa ugualmente disagio perchè le nostre strade cittadine sono tutte in salita o in discesa e piene di curve !
    Invece sulla mia casa di montagna ( 1.8100 metri ) la neve è molto ma molto abbondante.
    Per ora resto in città.... c'è meno freddo !!!!

  24. I tried to capture lightning once and it was very, very difficult....I finally got "one" fairly good shot! It was before I had a tripod and my neck was Hurting!!!!

    Beautiful shot!!!!
