I have gone out many nights this summer trying to get some decent pictures of lightning. Up until Friday night, all I got was a bunch of garbage.
But after going to the Diary Of A Wimpy Kid movie with Jackson Friday night we saw lots of lightning on the horizon. Jackson said "Dad, lets go take lightning pictures!" I was planning to go, but I was even more excited when I saw how excited he was.
We got lucky and I drove to a spot that had a perfect view of the approaching storm. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the evening:
Jackson and I had a blast showing each other the pictures we had gotten. We couldn't have asked for a better night.
Great pics! What settings did you use on your camera? Here are some lightening shots I got a while back:ReplyDelete
Awesome shots. Wow!!ReplyDelete
The third one is my favorite! I love taking pictures of storms too, but I have a crappy camera so they are never even close to that awesome.ReplyDelete
Wow-incredible photos Cory!ReplyDelete
Awesome! Sounds like such a fun night.ReplyDelete
Jackson will always remember that night with his daddy! What great memories for him and of course the photos are superb as well!!ReplyDelete
They're great photos. And it's a nice way to spend quality time with your boy.ReplyDelete
So cool!! And I love that your son wanted to go with you!ReplyDelete
p.s. what settings did you use on your camera?
Fantastic pictures, and even cooler that Jackson was so excited about it. That'll be something you guys remember for a long time I bet.ReplyDelete
Geez, No wonder my daughter was freaking out. poor baby, she was staying at a house right under there. very cool pictures though.ReplyDelete
WOW!!! They almost look sci-fi, like lightening claws! Good job!ReplyDelete
Very cool! How do you do that? Leave the lens open for awhile? I'm glad you guys got to spend some quality time together. Great shots!ReplyDelete

Hey, just saw your picture on KSL News. You are famous once again :)ReplyDelete
Hey there! I'm a long time stalker - first time poster. I also saw your pic on KSL. It was kinda trippy. I was running on a treadmill at the gym, listening to music on my headphones when I looked up randomly at the TV and saw your lightning photo. I had just read your post about 45 minutes earlier, and thought, "Whoa, that looks exactly like the photo I just saw on fastcory.com".ReplyDelete
Anyway, great blog you have here. On long runs I think about your ultra recaps to try to convince myself that marathons are easy.
Holy cow- those pics are amazing!!ReplyDelete
