Ok, want to thank Mike for another excellent job hosting. I know it can be difficult to get out and shoot every week but lets get everyone posting. Good luck and as I mentioned, I am traveling this week but will check in every night at my hotel. Rules are below. Cheers. JIM

awesome stuff, Jimbo!

I went out last night with Matt G to shoot the Milky Way and we kept seeing little flashes of light...long story short, a summer squall far to the east and a good ol' fashioned storm chase ensued.

We finally found an electrical tower in a cornfield to use as foreground and opened shutters just in time to catch a few cloud to ground lightning bolts.

Here is one:

Electric Blue


...i never did see that Milky Way...



[EDIT: adding pic #2]

Here is another from earlier in the night. We were high above Danville at Morgan Territory Preserve for some star shooting. I used the O-GPS Astrotracer function to get this 2 minute star exposure. The backlight is the city of Livermore, CA.

Night Glow





heck, here is a third from last night. It was a completely dark, moonless night and this looked like a rustic old shed from the road...after climbing over some barbed wire, rough brush, etc to get up close to it, I wasn't going away empty handed when i saw the shed was actually quite newish with a bench in front.

Wow! Great shot Mike!
I've tried, but never shot a lightning bolt quite that good.
The tower definitely helps with the imagery.
We're talking power, baby! :o

Thanks JIMBO :) What I love about this type of photography is how it impacts women. their reactions to seeing how beautiful they can look often surprises them. Guess I will have to post more images :)

RM - yep, we like it when you post and to some degree, envy your work. I'm with Jimbo on this - keep'em coming.

Jimbo - rest assured, I'll get my quota filled this week. I've got some shoots coming up that I'm holding off posting for results from them. But...here are two from this week.

You are the second person (and I mean random person at that) who has said the same thing. I don't see it and didn't see it when I took it. Interesting. Thanks.

Tim you have a main area that is lighter with a sprinkling of dappled light on e the sides leading to a darker area. IT pulls you in and since its a soft dark and looks cool it is peaceful to me. Plus there is the shadow lines helping to pull you in. It makes me wonder and if I let my mind drift a bit, where will that bridge take me? Where could I be going? On what journey? Thats it for me, my reasons for loving the image :)
