Sky Watch Friday (#30)

It's Friday again, and that means Sky Watch Friday!

The other night (a couple weeks ago) the lightning in the clouds was just non-stop. I tried and tried to get a picture, but I can never seem to get it. Add to that the fact that the mosquitos were thick so that I couldn't stand still and hold the camera still long enough to actually get a picture. So I gave up and tried video. At least this way I caught some lightning. It's still fun to watch, even in the video.

Here's the one lightning picture I ever managed to get:

From where I sit on the couch, I can see lightning out the front door tonight. It's not continual, but it's pretty awesome when it lights up the sky.

If you enjoy looking at the sky as much as I do, you'll want to check out Sky Watch Friday at Wiggers World. Join in or just enjoy all the wonderful sky pictures.

  1. wow, a lightning? we had a storm the other day, but it was raining to hard, and it get to cold to have the patience to wait for one... :)

  2. Very nice picture. I dont have luck taking photo of lightning, one reason I am afraid. You are smart to capture them on video first. Well done. Have a nice weekend.

  3. I like this video! The lightening picture is great! I've tried and failed to get a lightening picture.

  4. Unfortunately Tom is on bed rest today and for the first time you are stuck with me. I have my orders to visit as many as I can, and make sure the links are working and everyone is being good. I am sure you are all being good.
    Tom and I thank you for Sky-Watching this week. I am sure that as soon as Tom's heart beat settles down he will be back here and visiting.


  5. Lightening and rainbows I'm still yet to capture. Great choice.

  6. Clever ... and a neat way to see the sky!


  7. Hallo from north Norway. Last week I saw all Sky Watch Friday photos and they were all great, and I hope to see them all this week too. I love to travel around the world this way.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful sky watch and have a great weekend!


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
