‘Twas a Dark and Stormy Night


‘Twas a Dark and Stormy Night

by admin on Aug.25, 2009, under Seasons

I came up in the third week of August to finish up the outdoor lights on the cabin. It was sunny and hot (about 96 deg.) when I arrived, and it was good to see the sun finally set on Friday evening. At about 7:15’ish, a storm built right over the top of the ranch, and grew quickly. For the next two hours, I was treated to a pretty good lightning storm. Here are some pictures from that night.

Lightning over the South Mountain

The evening was pitch black, in between lightning strikes.  Sometimes the mountain would be backlighted by the strikes…

More August Lightning

And sometimes the whole sky would light up like daytime…

Lit Up

I never managed to get a really good picture, as I was relying on my reflexes to capture the strike, which was usually gone by the time I pressed the shutter.  I need to learn how to do open shutter photography with the digital camera.

We got rain the next day for a couple of hours, clearing off at night.  Then on Sunday, I woke up to this…

Flats shrouded in Fog

The flats were completely shrouded in fog.  It looked like a lake from the cabin.  Pretty neat.
