Found myself wide awake at 4;15 am this morning due to....get this.......the song birds out singing their songs during a thunderous thunder storm. Crazy. So, I decided to get myself up, make some coffee and go out and maybe catch a lightning strike or two. This is the first real storm we've really had this spring so I was kind of excited to make use of my "Lightning Sensor" device I have to hopefully catch some strikes. And since its been awhile and I wasn't expecting to wake up to a storm, I was a little rusty at setting myself up. Number one problem was the rain getting on the lens and messing up good shots. I figured out a few things that will help the next time. And then, the shots I did get weren't as good as they could be since I was so close to some of the action that the thunder hit right when the lightning strike hit and kind of scared the tarter sauce out of me and I therefore, moved a bit giving me a blurrier shot than it should of been. So, take these for what there worth. 1st lightning shots of the year. Hopefully, more "good" ones to come.
