Over the last week or so a lot of my storm chasing friends have been out chasing storms and I have been sitting at my desk at work. Sadly there doesn’t seem to be a midwest storm chasing trip in the cards for me this year, I did enjoy watching their live streams while they were out, and in a couple cases I even managed to direct the action a tiny bit by sending some texts and asking for camera positions to be changed. They were out seeing amazing weather, including lightning, and I was looking at a monitor.
While watching those streams, and doing my day job, I was also working on a couple presentations that I will be giving to my local camera club, the Olympia Camera Club, this week. One will be on IR Photography and the other on Time Lapse. I came across this image of a lightning strike that I captured in Tucson a few years ago. This is one of the very few lightning strikes I have ever captured with an IR converted camera.
