My light filled evening

Even though I am not the best, my first love is photography. This evening, we had a pretty significant thunderstorm. we're talking thousands of strikes an hour significant. Everyone else went to bed but I was working on putting all my ribbon onto my new ribbon ring (yeah!) We missed half of CSI for the tornado warnings just north of here, so I was looking forward to a doozy of a storm. We, of course, caught the thinnest band of it. But it was impressive nontheless.

Here is one of the 204 frames I took this evening. Do you know how hard it is to capture a thunderstorm with a 3 year old point and shoot digital camera? Argh. Frustrating. I missed all the best shots cause the lag time was so slow! Grrrr. But anyway, here is my favorite shot of the night. Bear in mind, that this frame was shot at about 9:45 pm, not in the early evening. It was pitch black out. Hope you enjoy your friday/weekend!
