The Return of Inspiration

Update: In the initial rush to get these published I didn’t realise that quite a few of them are of the same lightning strike but from each of the two cameras I was using at the time. The reason I didn’t really pick that up is because obviously over time the time keeping in the two different cameras has slowly drifted apart by about 5 minutes, and because there was heaps of shots with no lightning in those 5 minutes, the corresponding images didn’t even show up on the same view in LR. For example, the really huge strike that appeared to hit the fire was at 19:02:23 on the 50D and at 19:06:43 on the 60D. I have updated the descriptions to reflect this, and I’ve reset the times so it shouldn’t happen again. Sorry for not noticing it sooner.

After a long hiatus, I return to this site with some awesome lightning photos from a small storm that passed south of Clermont earlier this evening.

After that all of the storms in the area started to die off, and I had filled the 50D memory card, so I headed home. All in all, I think that was a successful evening.

And to make things even better, I’m started to feel inspired again. And all it took was a small lightning storm.
