LOL! You couldn't have chosen a more elusive subject!

It looks like drops of rain or snow. I think it must be rain. It is a postcard photograph or could be a mystery novel cover shot. I really like it. You must celebrate Mother's Day a week early. Here, where I live, Mother's Day is next Sunday.

I am anxious for you to see the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak that came to Brookville, Ohio yesterday. It is the first one I have seen since we moved here 44 years ago.

a very beautiful night glimpse, and those spotted "light" let me think of the moon and the stars which we can share with mom wherever we are.

love this one

I like it! And I hope for your sake that it's not snow... I've only once experienced a snow shower with lightning. That was a bit strange.

totally unique. The rain, the looming clouds over the warm city lights.

Kate said...

It's a lovely nocturnal photo; who needs lightening for a good shot?! Actually, it's gotta be hard to capture.

nice vibrant shot!

Tara said...

I hope it wasn't too stormy! Nice shot, and Happy Mother's Day to you! We will celebrate Mother's Day in the US next Sunday..

Lightning required patience...A long shutter speed helps as well :)

I also have tried to capture a lighting strike with no luck. Part of the problem is Greenville does not have a lot of lighting. While my memories include thunder storms in Texas with so many lightning strikes it would be impossible to miss a lighting strike if you took multiple random photos.

Kris said...

lightning is incredibly hard to photograph! First you must be brave, then you must be very very very very patient!
Nice shot!

richard said...

You have to be darned quick with that lightning stuff.
