IR Lightning

Lightning strike over the southern Arizona desert outside of Tucson captured with and IR converted camera

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.

    Love this shot, Scott! What great details in the lightning strike itself, the surrounding city, and the brooding and incredibly massive cloud formation that appears to be unleashing everything it has!
