I think I could stare at that for ages.
A microburst just before it did.
This is not Hurricane Katrina (the top image).
These photographs (with the exception of the last photograph) were taken about 8 years before Hurricane Katrina.
The original photograph (number one) was taken around 1995, and the others not much afterwards.
I have not seen the last image that I can remember
Maybe, but they still look good...
I tried for years to get a good lightning strike shot, particularly in the Goldfields and other remote areas of W.A. - but generally with little success.
Then one time in the early 1970's, I got a fantastic single lightning strike at night, shot with my old SLR Canon, in the Southern Goldfields of W.A.
It was a massive strike that ran from top right of the frame towards the bottom left, and it illuminated a large Salmon Gum that was adjacent to my buildings on my mining lease.
I was really proud of it - but only had the one original copy on a 35mm slide. Then, in 1982, my house in the W.A. wheatbelt suffered an overvoltage event that set fire to it, and in which fire, I lost vast amounts of my personal possessions.
And amongst those lost possessions was hundreds and hundreds of photos - along with that superb lightning strike shot!
There’s a message in there somewhere.
Another photo, this time a storm approaching Moscow.
Unfortunately, as with many "fantastic" photos and captions, the reality is a little different to what it is purported to be. Photo-editing is a worldwide sport.
