Fire Water :: CT

Fact: Lightning is powerful, awe-inspiring, scary, dangerous and beautiful.

To nature and landscape photographers, that’s often an irresistible combination of traits for something to have.  And, like most things we photograph – the ocean filled with rogue waves and sharks, the frozen lake we pray doesn’t crack open while we’re on it, the mountain view at sunrise that required a hike in the dark through bear country –  the question is always, “How do we make a beautiful image without getting dead?”

2016 was a year of expanding my skills.  One of the things I tried my hand at for the first time was lightning photography and IT.WAS. AWESOME!  Of my three lightning season trips last year, this shot is my favorite.  There is a lot to improve upon still, but the experiences of being one with the storm, so to speak….those memories are just about perfect!

    I love this photo. The colours are warm but sinister, and the lightning looks wicked. The water in the foreground is calm, the background is turbulent.

    Very inspiring – and we’re expecting thunderstorms here in Sydney tonight!

      If you go shooting, be careful! But definitely good luck. Capturing lightning is tons of fun!

      Thanks for the feedback! 😊
