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!
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 for suggesting this as a DD and to 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!
Thank you very much!
I'd love under those strikes but I'd not take a shower or use the phone
