Rolling in

"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky."
~ Rabindranath Tagore

I had a frustrating evening last night and the storm front ever so slowly rolling towards our home was a nice distraction for an hour. I stood in the field of soy across the road from our home with my tripod dug into the dirt and experimented with different exposures, ISO, focal lengths and lenses. The problem with the lightning last night was that it was all inner cloud. Not a single bolt to be seen.

I learned a few things about settings and though the picture isn’t awful it is not as exciting as a classic lightning bolt frozen against a black sky.

It’s going to be a long weekend…
