New Photos: Thunderstorm


I should update my website instead of scheduling blog posts. Alas, I love blogging too much! I read an article recently about eliminating time drainers that do not “forward your goals” – aka the book covers or the books, I guess – and according to it things like this blog should be eliminated to save time. They’re probably right; I could do useful stuff instead of post here. But I get the enjoyment from it, so that’s worth it to me. It can’t be all work 24/7!

Anyway, there was an awesome storm that produced some pretty good photos. It took awhile to get the focus and such right, so I didn’t get as many as I would have liked, but no need to be greedy.

Pink & Purple


Makes me think of My Little Pony. I don’t know why. I bet a psychiatrist would have fun with my weird associations.

And no, I did not adjust the color/levels/curves/etc on these. They came out purple like that and I left it because it was an awesome shade.

    I have terrible trouble getting night shots with my camera – they don’t look like night
    as for fruthering one’s goals – if you’re not having fun what’s the point? my “must do” is so far down on my list….

      Yes, I know what you mean! If they’re dark then you can;t see anything and if you brighten it up then it ends up looking like daylight. I have this trouble, too 😦

      heh-heh, I have so many must do’s that are no fun… 😉 someday I will retire and abandon them all, LOL!

    I have trouble with night photos and esp moon photos. I’m not sure what kind of camera I need, but I don’t have it. I love the lightening photos. Very cool!

    Great pics! The one that you say “I like this one!” is my favorite. I’ve never tried taking pics of storms before. I’ll have to give it a go and see how badly I fail lol.

    • Joleene Naylor says :

      I used a long shutter speed. I think I had it set for like 20 seconds – and a low ISO (otherwise with the shutter open that long I got a big white blob, LOL!) I bet you can do it 😉

    A lightning trigger would be very helpful to capture lightning photos.
