Default Storm Chaser


About 3 hours ago there was mighty BOOM that rattled the windows.
Grabbing the camera I ran outside just in time to see a mighty dagger of lightning strike down to earth.
Then down came the rain in bucketfuls, I aimed my camera at the sky hoping to catch the next burst of lightning
but I missed it, and the next, and the next until I got lucky. I reckon that thunder should come first, followed by lightning.
It would be so much easier to catch the flash! Anyway, the camera and I got a drenching but who cares; OMD and I are both weather sealed!


The storm broke without warning. Had I expected it I may have had time to set up the camera for more spectacular shots. The dark smudges is rain on the lens, (water bunnies )

But no sooner had it begun before it was over. A beautiful double rainbow rose out of the church - an omen I thought!

The opening diptych was more a-r-s-e than class. Handheld and pointed skywards.
The camera was set for 5fps sequential shooting. I just took guesses when the next flash would be and got lucky, twice.

Gautam, Mr Pickles, thanks, the double rainbow is a natural phenomenom, not any kind of composite. The dark smudges are caused by rain on the lens.
