Lightning Storms Entertaining Me Once Again

Sister lightning strikes (CG's) over FL.

A great complex of lightning storms developed over eastern Glades, Highlands and Okeechobee counties last night. The first day of August gave one fantastic lightning show that started around sunset and lasted well into the evening hours.

Over the last few weeks I’ve put off going out after dark for Florida lightning photography opportunities due to several other projects I’ve been working on. Plus, the Saharan Dust and stubborn high pressure systems killed off thunderstorm chances over a good 10-12 day period during the second half of July. It was painful not seeing any good storms for almost two weeks. Luckily I had weak Tropical Storm Bonnie to stir up some interesting weather last week to keep me sane.

Lighting picture series.Last night was enjoyable to get back out and shoot some vivid lightning storms. Besides dealing with some mosquitoes and fire ants, it was a fun few hours watching and capturing the classic sea breeze storms deliver some cloud-to-ground lightning (CG) action once again.

So jealous...we've had some decent storms in AZ, but the lightning was doused from all the heavy moisture in the atmo...

Dying for some seriously good lightning strikes this weekend.
