Fire from the Sky / Lightning, Outer Banks, North Carolina

Lightning, Outer Banks

Lightning, OBX 2006

With the arrival of summer weather, lightning season is fast approaching. I look forward to safely capturing striking (pun intended) images of this amazing and powerful natural phenomenon.

This image, which I posted when I first started this blog, still memorializes the most extraordinary lightning strike I have ever witnessed.

While lightning images require a tripod to keep the shutter open awaiting the strike, on this occasion I had left mine at a different location. Using a hotel railing as support, I timed the shutter release to capture this monumental strike.  The force of the lightning shook the building, yet I was still able to keep the lifeguard stand in focus and record the soft blur of the blowing sea grass.

As my Artist Statement reflects… I capture moments in time, never to be repeated.
