Twilight of the Thunder God by Moohoodles Twilight of the Thunder God by Moohoodles
Some lightning over the valley of Salt Lake City. I love photographing lightning! This was taken with the deck on my house for stability, since I didn't have a tripod part, hence the blurry city lights. I believe that's the Copper Mine :)
Before photoshop, this photo was way overexposed because I had the shutter open for so long waiting for a little strike, but then finally this massive one hit in a blink of an eye. I messed with the levels and what not, and got this. I am so happy. Kind of disappointed about the tree in the way, but it adds some weird surrealism.

Having a kind of hard time remembering, but I'm pretty sure there was the loud, quick, "cracking" thunder noise. Was a pretty awesome storm :)

This is so beautiful, and yet my worst nightmare at the same time. I'm terrified of lightning, but at the same time it amazes me. I personally like the tree in the foreground. It gives me a sense of watching this from safety, although by a tree is one of the last places you want to be in a thunderstorm, haha.

Thank you! :) Me too, but it's so beautiful! And thanks, the tree was bad framing on my part, since I didn't quite know where I was aiming my camera in the dark. I like it as well, for the weird abstract look it has. :)
