I awoke last night to the sound of thunder (well actually it was 4:30 am September 12, 2009). How far off I sat and wondered. Ode to Bob Seger's Night Moves, www.lyricsfreak.com/b/bob+seger/night+moves_20021973.html .
Drove to the Marin Headlands but it was way too foggy so I went low near the Coast Guard station for this shot of the Golden Gate Bridge. Sat in my car with a remote shutter listening to podcasts. Wrapped a poncho around my camera when the rain started. Took lots of shots, this was about my fourth shot of the morning when I got lucky. You should of heard me say "YEEEESS!" when I saw the huge strike and the sky lit up white/blue with light. Ooooh, what a lucky man he was (Ode to ELP).
