This big, fat man was sound asleep when I walked past, perfectly content to have the sun shining on his enormous stomach. I have no idea whose family he was part of, where he came from, or what he was doing...

Lightening over Wrightsville

A storm had moved into the area where we were vacationing at the beach. It was a very active storm with quite a few spectacular bolts so I thought that this was as good time to capture a lightening storm as a photograph.
Lightening is always one of the more popular subjects for photography but one that is demanding in patience and timing. I was fortunate that I was several floors up at the hotel and that the surrounding terrain was relatively flat giving me a wide open vista. I set up tripod on the passageway and pointed the camera towards the town of Wrightsville.
So for twenty minutes I kept snapping away at the storm but it seems that no matter how long the shutter speed setting I set for the camera, I always seem to be missing the moment when a bolt struck the ground. Except this one time when I caught two bolts hitting the ground nearly simultaneously. It is not the most spectacular of the lightening I saw that night but it is still gratifying to have this shot.
