    They are lights to light up the boardwalk. Awful color eh?

    Not awful, them just seem like...fires or sparks, you know? Very interesting and adds to the mystique
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Re: Lightning shots!!! The offical thread

    Here is one right off the camera that I messed up.


    By far the best lightning shot of the night but the wind blew me forward a bit into
    the frame as the lightning strobed the image and froze me in the picture. You can
    see me holding my jacket open trying the shield the camera from the wind and rain
    that was driving sideways. Photo FAIL! :cry:

    I was out tonight and shot with John K as a cell past just to our north. I needed to try something a little different so when the downpour slowed I ran to my car and grabbed a flash and popped the car about 10 time to get this

    Fred, last night was EPIC! Think I left about 2 minutes too soon, but I still had a blast, no pun intended.

    WOW!!! You guys got some great shots of the storms last night. Wish one of those storms would have passed through my area. We didn't get anything. Maybe through the rest of the weekend I'll get the chance. Looks like more storms are forecast over the next couple days.

    Fred, those are awesome. I especially love the last three shots. Where were they taken from? Robert Moses?

    Sorry Steve, I did not see your reply. Yes, they were from Robert Moses.

    Here is new one from tonight. Softness was due to the heavy downpour
