Pic of the Week 6/14/18
Date taken: 6/7/18
Location: outside of Throckmorton, TX
Its my birthday today and I didn't want to have to write up a long story for the Pic of the Week. This is an image I captured on my first bust of the 2018 season. When we arrived on location the storms really lost their organization and quickly gusted out. But it did put on a nice lightning show for us to enjoy. This is a single exposure shot over 8 second shutter speed and I captured all 4 lightning strikes in the same image. We continued chasing the storm well after dark battling torrential rains and high wind gusts in Archer City. We finished up early and got back to the apartment around 10pm and then lost power for a few hours after midnight. All in all it wasn't a bad photo shoot, but the dying storms and chase strategy made me feel like we busted. Either way, I still came back with a nice image and that's all I could really ask for.
