Dash Camera by Corvidae65 Dash Camera by Corvidae65
*Full View Please*

Caught this last ngiht as I was getting ready for work--I set the camera on the dash of my truck set it for 30 second exposures and remotely fired it through the windhield with my wireless remote as I did my pre-trip inspection. Every time I got near the window I'd fire the remote. I got good and soaked before I got my inspections done :raincloud: Got to drive 450 miles with soaked underwear :doh: Anybody got any baby powder? :lmao:

The strange things you see in the image are reflections and rain streaks from the wipers :laughing:

I got several shots but this is the only one that will make ot to DA and it will probably go to scraps soon since there is that horrible power pole covering a large portion of the lightning.

At least I got a severe weather fix :eager:

:rofl:

Thanks for looking , commenting and faving :thanks:

Shame about the pole. It is a wonderful bolt.

Yeah--I totally forgot about those darn poles :shakefist: Now, if the bolt had *hit* the pole THAT would have been something :plotting:

Thanks Mark

Fabulous! My friend and I were lightning hunting, And we caught some good ones. They're not clear like this one, though. Great job!
