Lightning at Dusk

    Newer Older

    Spectacular electrical storms often spawn near the Louisiana coast. Lightning strikes the ground, above the clouds, and travels great distances through the clouds. I captured this photo with CHDK and a motion detection script (see this post for more details).

    jeanschex, DonaSite, PhyreWorX, and 401 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      A beauty! -- Lightning struck a horizontal rod over an outdoor enclosed swimming pool
      where a dozen of us swam, on a clear summer day! -- Is it 1 million volts in a strike?
      We survived, in shock, laughing like maniacs, unbelieving ... "We're still HERE??"
      It changed our lives! -- I've decided to start a lightning Photo - discussion. -- Are you in?
