So many title choices ripped from songs for this shot but so little creativity from me.  I guess my brain has finally turned to mush from so many miles in that Blue Freightshaker.  The best and most beautiful moments for me in trucking is when I get an opportunity like this one--shot was taken east of Gillette, Wyoming.  I drove through that storm 70 miles from Buffalo, Wyoming in a mad attempt to get in front of it.  This time I got what I wanted...The storm wasn't moving faster than my truck! :lol:

This storm was laying down wicked cool lightning every few seconds--this was a 30 second exposure and you can see how many bolts in that timeframe.  One of the very best storms of the 2013 year I got to shoot.  I've another shot from a different angle that the company I drive for used in some advertising.  It was kind of cool to see one of my shots in print media even if I didn't get paid.  I probably won't post that shot--at least, not for a while. 


Holy Crimeny!  A DD!  This was a very welcome and pleasant surprise after a long, cold day on the road!  Thank you to :iconbokehlight: for suggesting this as a DD and to :iconanoya: for featuring it and thank you to everyone who has viewed, commented on or faved this.  I appreciate it more than any of you know! :thanks:

Well, hello there J. P.!  damn good to see you! :handshake:  Yeah, you're right--I was whoopin' and hollerin' and everybody passing by on the interstate thought I was having an infarction or something! :laughing: 

Thanks for the kudos--you're part of the reason this shot came out so good you know :nod:  I've always wanted my stuff to be close to par with yours so you liking this enough to skip some boobies really means a lot to me, pard!  Thank you!
