Monochrome Madness 2 31/52 Clouds

Copyright ©2015 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

It’s Theme Week at Monochrome Madness2 and our theme is Clouds. I went back to my archives for an image I made this summer while in Lassen National Park. I went up for the week-end with friends hoping to photograph the night sky’s stars, but clouds rolled in, and with them Lightning. It was Sheet Lightning I think. No bolts were visible at any rate, but the clouds lit up and were amazing.

Instead of photographing stars we chased the storm, and lightning for a couple of hours. Then the sky opened up and poured down rain. We packed up and dashed back to the car, and down the mountain to our hotel wet, but exhilarated.

    1. Thank you Cybele! Yes, I think it’s Sheet Lightning lighting up the clouds. I don’t know anything about lightning types so did a little digging. Sheet Lightning best describes what we saw. No bolts, but great light in the clouds and sky.

      1. This is very different from your other photos and I like it allot! I love them as well of course. I really like that you chose something that might not be seen as obviously beautiful and made it beautiful!!

A penny for your thoughts...
