A #waybackmachine post of thunder and lightning

This post was originally posted on myblueheaven.com back on Sept. 13, 2011.  While this image on it’s own might not have been worthy of re-sharing here on the new blog, but there is something very special about this strike, and it is the crux of the original post.  It is the first time that I captured thunder and lightning as both an image and an audio recording at the same time.  I hope you enjoy it, and please take a few minutes to listen to the embedded AudioBoo.



Lightning strike near Chandler, AZ

A couple years ago I started recording an occasional Audio Boo while out capturing storm images.  Even though I don’t think that very many people actually listen to them, I enjoy doing them and I also enjoy going back and listening to some of the early ones to see where my thoughts were at the time.  During this past Friday night’s epic lightning display, I was recording one of those Audio Boos when I captured this image.  The cool thing about this is that you can actually hear the thunder from this very strike in that Boo.  After all the years that I have been shooting lightning, this is the first time that I have been able to share not only the image of the strike, my reaction to capturing it and the sound of the thunder.
