Working that Thunderstorm
Well I wasn’t kidding when I said on Monday that it has been a busy time but I got out for a little bit chasing the thunderstorm that we had a couple nights ago. It didn’t produce to much lightning but the god beams were fantastic. No barn to put with them but a large open ranch isn’t a bad runner up.
It was interesting watching the light come down through the opening in the clouds, the light kept changing as it bounced around the clouds. Until finally it left with a little color on the hillside.
When it comes to landscape photography I try to keep things pretty simple by using the D4 and in this case just a 24-70 AF-S. It’s amazing how much you can accomplish with the basic tools and a little finishing work in post. Keeping it simple means more time to be out shooting.
