Time To Take Cover by CapturingTheNight Time To Take Cover by CapturingTheNight

A small diversion from my usual night sky photography. An approaching storm on the 23rd of December. This one was headed straight for me and I had a garbage bag ready to go over the camera as soon as the rain started. About three minutes after doing this two image panorama the heavy rain started and I had to run for the car. Lightning was a lot closer than it appears here due to the wide angle lens and the field of view.


If you really want to see great lightning shots check out my friend Shaun's work :iconsyndyne: He is the master. I am an amateur in comparison. Please do yourself a favor and check him out.....

Woohoo! :iconwoohooplz: Awesome shot, Greg! What's a little rain? You probably needed a bath anyway :O But you were right to run...Rain is not our cameras friend :no:

:lol:

It's cool how I first found you on DA, then found Shaun through you and Datazoid too, so oyu can't blame me for hanging around bugging you guys--It's all because of your shot with that strange sign and the milky way. ;)

:lmao: Thank you very much again John. Yeah I probably did need that bath :D Storms have been few and far between for me this season so far. Good to finally get some action.
I am very glad you found me in the first place. I always value your feedback. Also glad that I led you to Shaun and Russell.
