Lightning Achievement Unlocked!

Fresh when it gets here from Julie Barrett
Wednesday, May 8, 2024

I've been hoping for years to get a lightning photo. Any photo would do - I just wanted to capture a lightning bolt.

Tonight was the night. And I'm glad I wasn't out for perfection or I'd never have gotten the shot. I was in the car at a traffic light with my cell phone. So yes, it's not the best quality, but I'm really happy to have done it!

Lightning Bolt Over Suburbia

Of course, I live in Texas where the weather is very changeable. I've managed green sky and funnel clouds, but never lightning. So yeah, achievement unlocked!

Now pardon me while I go delete a truckload of pictures from my phone.
