I have not traveled around this year like I did the last few years so I haven't taken many pictures. A few here, there. Here's one that I took a couple of weeks ago. I have been by this spot many times and taken the odd photo. I thought nothing about it. Then I looked at it a couple of days ago and I really like it.
Saturday night was an interesting weather night. Severe thunder storms and tornado warnings with hail stones the size of Kate Smith were issued though no tornado's were reported. Two storm cells travelling from the north west made there way diagonally across the state. To my north was another storm cell in Manchester New Hampshire, about 40 or 50 miles away.The 4 major TV networks were on for about an hour and a half giving updates. We (me) didn't get much severe weather but we (me) did get some rain, lots of thunder and lightning. Me, I mean, my windows lit up a number of times with bright white flash of lightning. I stood outside in the very damp air and aimed my camera at an area of the sky and tried to capture lightning. I got one. It's not even as good as another I took some time ago. But I did get one. It's not a real good picture. This is it right out of the camera.
I tried to enhance it and balance the light and the contrast and so on but they aren't that much better than the raw shot. Here are other versions of the picture.
I don't know why I had a problem making the third picture larger but it really doesn't matter.
I have not been at my computer at all for about two days for various reasons. I suppose it's not a bad thing to pull away from the computer every now and then. Most of the time I was working odd ball hours. Hey I picked retail. I am off today but I have some things to do. This blog ended up being something totally different than I had intended and I don't feel like typing anymore. Gotta go.
I'm outta here.
