another 'On The Road' shot :) taken on highway 50 south of Gillette, Wyoming this morning as I was waiting to unload. An awesome late night/early morning thunderstorm I had been watching all night on the way to Gillette became really lightning active.

I didn't have my tripod with me (note to self--NEVER forget your tripod again! :shakefist:) so I used a handy fencepost to steady the camera during the 30 second exposure. :thumbsup: I got several really great catches--the best I've taken in my opinion--so I'll probably spam your inbox with a few of them :giggle:

Anyway, thanks for looking, commenting and faving :thanks:

I'm slowly getting caught up on deviations and comments. Thank you for your patience :)

Ah Ha! Third time trying to fav it and finally got it!

Cool Shot! I love how all the lightning seems to come down over the farm! Must have an antenna somewhere.

awesome! I like how it looks like it's devouring that house lol

also the faint glow from the lights of your car/truck/semi give the foreground some good interest for depth :)

Hello, dear, dear, dear John!!!!

I am so sorry that I have took so long to come... :huggle: I LOVED all thunder your photos...!
I had to pick one to comment on because I didn't want to say the same things several times hahaha!! :heart:

By the way, the one with the dark heavy clouds is amazing. I love it when the sky looks like that, so black-purple-white when a lightning glows :omg: .... It must have been an amazing night, and I must say that you did a magnificent job EVEN without your tripod!!!

When I did full view on the other photos I noticed that the green light actually belonged to the house and was not caused by the lightning as I thought before ... (better so... I was afraid it had fallen on the house! :wow:

I can never have enough of your lightnings :love:... You know how much I enjoy them!!!

I am extremely behind on my watch, it's never lack of love, you know that... I am starting to fave and run a bit or I'll never catch up!

And by the way, your macro is also beautiful. It holds such a tenderness...! It's soft and beautiful, like tiny feathers!!!!

Keep them coming, ok ? I'll get there eventually ! :icontardglompplz::huggle::blowkiss:

I understand the lack of time, manwathiell :nod: I'm glad you like the lightning grabs I managed to get :aww: Thank you my friend :glomp: I am way behind too--this being the first time I've been able to get on the 'puter to do much of anything all week :phew: I think I have 750 deviations stacked up and a couple hundred messages :work: I'm trying to plow through them today but I have my dounts as to getting to them all :shrug:

The lightning was actually pretty far off but it looked like Dante's Inferno around that farmhouse :fear: It was a lot of fun and I had to tear myself away from that storm and go back to work :D

Don't worry about commenting on my stuff or even faving it--I know how things get backed up ;)

Thank you again my friend :icontardglompplz:

Well, I know you understand but I don't like having to leave YOU behind.
Or Jonathan! You understand what I mean... :heart:

I did a lot of faving and running though. I really hate having that much on
my watch and maybe I should review who I watch, but every time I can't remove
anyone ...:shrug:

I know the feeling of having to drag yourself from that storm... they are so
fascinating that you always wait for "just one more"... we bet? :laughing:
And I can imagine how it must have been like. I hope the owners got no damage
on their property!!! :aww:

How do you DARE to say that I shouldn't worry about commenting or faving your
works, dear John!!! I DO worry!!! Because I love you AND your photos!!! :tears:

But I know what you mean. Just never THINK that I'm forgetting you, ok?
Promised? :please::aww:
