You light up my life.

The storm from yesterday's post arrived later in the evening and put on a great light display.

This is my first attempt at lightning photos using a tripod and time exposure, and this was the only decent one I got.

Thanks to Denton at Greenville Daily Photo for feeding the cat and posting for me while I am in Vietnam!!

I've tried many a time to capture lightening but without success. I bet you were well pleased with the results.

Great catch! I've tried to get photos of lightening before too and I kept waiting and waiting and caught nothing but gray cloud photos.

Great photo of the lightning for your first effort. Is it thunderstorm season now in Rabaul? We've had a few already, but our thunderstorm season doesn't really take off till mid-October. I'm so sorry I missed catching up with you, Jules, when you were in Brisbane.

I am not sure if I could do this either but you did a great job here!

It's fabulous Jules, I've never had a camera with me when there has been a storm here.
