Brad came in from the porch a few nights ago, after seeing the lightening show we were getting, and came inside to get me. I went to the porch swing to watch the storm with him, and after about 30 seconds of seeing how the sky was lighting up, I demanded that we road trip to find a good spot to take pictures. I grab the camera bag and we headed out until we found a great place with a wide open view, off the road a little. We parked, layed outside the car, and took turns clicking the shutter, hoping for a bright burst every time. Something about the challenge of getting the perfect lightening storm photo is so addictive to me. I could have stayed there until the last of the storm blew through. There is always a lot of "okay, three more tries..".
In the moment, it seemed silly to be inside watching TV or spending money to see a movie, when was such a stunning show was happening right over our heads, for free. So, Thanks for the entertainment, Earth. I never get tired of it.
