Lightening Strikes

Did you know that Utah has a monsoon season? Sometime 'round about August we start to get thunderstorms. The thunder and lightening can get pretty impressive at times. Not as intense as the storms we saw while living in southern Arizona, but still pretty cool.

Check out these pictures that my sister took during a recent thunderstorm in Logan.

When I saw these shots I was in awe! She has a similar camera to mine, but I have never managed to capture lightening. I am extremely jealous because it is something I have always wanted to do!


We just never seem to get enough lightening to justify going out in the rain, and there isn't really a clear view from my house. At least my sister was kind enough to let me post these awesome pictures!


My sister told me that she and her husband were standing outside in the rain under an umbrella taking these shots, all the while hoping they were not holding a lightening rod!


Maybe I don't mind so much after all that I am not the one who braved the elements to take these pictures! Thanks sis!

  11. Yes, I too have wished I could get some lightening shots. It is not a real convenient thing to take a picture of, but I guess that is how we get the best pictures, by going where others won't go! We've had some lightening the last couple of days ourselves. So nice since we've been in a drought!
