Thunder and lightning

Pretty self explanatory: A hot, muggy summer day ended with a short but violent thunderstorm. I was experimenting with lightning photos -- a tricky thing to do, there's a delay in my camera, so I was trying some different strategies. I hit upon the idea of capturing video and then using vidcaps as images. I was only partially successful but this short clip does give a sense of the power of a thunderstorm as it rolls through.

The last time I was outside in a thunderstorm like this, I was quite miserable in a tent on Mt. Mansfield, and expecting to die at any moment.

This little post also lets me try out blogger's new video hosting service, it doesn't say anything about storage quotas, I'll have to research this further.
