Lucky lady. Hawaii and St George. Have you ever driven straight south of St Geo into the Parashant NM? The storms were amazing there two weeks ago.
not yet, but it might happen one of these days.Lucky lady. Hawaii and St George. Have you ever driven straight south of St Geo into the Parashant NM? The storms were amazing there two weeks ago.
I was there maybe 25 years ago. We camped at a remote place called Crazy Jug Point. I wonder if that is still allowed. We also stayed in the official campground. Storms every evening.not yet, but it might happen one of these days.
For now I'm getting excited for my camping trip to Grand Canyon North Rim mid August with hopefully some nice storms moving through
Nice captures amigo!Had a storm blow over while I was camping on Grand Mesa. Pounding rain, a bit of slush, lightning. I sat up and watched through the windshield for a bit as the lightning moved south. Suddenly, I realized that the rain had stopped but the lightning wasn't stopping, and was still within perfect view. With quite the flurry of activity, the tripod came out, I found my way out of my sleeping bag (the zipper is becoming a bother) and I stumbled outside to giddily catch some lightning pics.
Started out with the shutter open a bit too long, a bit blown out.

Then dialed it in. It was awesome to watch. I love lightning, truly hard to believe I used to be terrified of it. My camera also caught a neat time lapse effect with the clouds that I didn't expect. But that would be a lot of dark, ho mummy pictures to share...

This year it's really weird. Even here it's all or nothing.Jealous! My corner of the state seems to now be scorning storms.
Usually I got caught by the storms on a hike. If the edge stays far enough away I just continue my hike and shoot the storms from where I am.
