I’ve been hibernating through the heat and humidity as I study for my professional exam. It’s been a surreal and rather blah summer… for both Mak and me. So last night after our swim and more studying, I decided to run the truck north into a lot of electrical activity. I’m very glad we went. We experienced drenching rains and stopped in several places to take photos which always included the passing windshield wiper.Keep in mind all these photos were taken in the pitch dark. All the visible light was from electric bolts.Between downpours the best place was a quiet field with only a few drops falling, crickets all around and the sky providing continual entertainment.Same view seconds later: In the same field pointing the camera in a different direction, I took video then extracted these frames:
Below is the view from another place I parked to capture the multi-colored splendor. I wonder if Mak could smell the ozone? These are taken with a crappy, old, Walmart, over-the-counter Canon SX160, and I dumped far more photos than I kept!
