    There is nothing like the storms we get here in Texas!

    I just got back from a second round of Thunderstorms... this shot was amazing! it was so bright it lit up everything including the camera... I usually don't use Photoshop but with out it you'd never see this shot... check out the before and after shots!

    Yeah that is true... I was more concerned with the constant rumbling from all the thunder I was thinking I was hearing a tornado... I couldn't believe it was all thunder!

    That is a very cool shot! I'll never see it like that in my location... the one I took, what was so hair raising about it, was that it was so close it had to been almost above my head I would have to guess around 500 yards or less? and at that distance one is enough! I was blinded for a few seconds and I ducked! The thunder came a second after... now I have been closer... I have been where I felt the heat and the thunder cracked 1/10th of a second after if not faster... I didn't have a camera then, at least not one that could do this!

    Thanks for sharing I love that picture... I'd love to see the high resolution version of it!

    Chuckers & Snakeyes .................great pics. Thanks for sharing. Chuckers..........enjoyed the video. Haven't had any real bad storms here (out side of Philly) in a good while but I've been noticing that the weather seems to be getting crazier and crazier. Not a good sign if ya ask me.
    never admit to anything
