Wishful Thinking

Although Santa Fe like much of the Southwest has been suffering from a drought, August is considered the "monsoon" season.  We have been treated to short periods of soft, gentle rain and several evenings of thunder showers.  Here Olivia is waiting to capture a lightening strike.  Not successful, but the lightening display was impressive.

  1. Gosh Kate, those clouds look like they have a bit more than gentle rain in them, very impressive clouds.

  2. I have never captured a lightning strike in a photo, and I have been taking photos for about a half century longer than Olivia.

  3. I really like this photo. It reminds me of all the photographers doing the same thing one night at the Grand Canyon.

  5. Very pretty shot! Lighting strikes are hard to catch, even for the best of photographers. :)

  6. Olivia just may be a photographer when she grows up! Last friday night, when we had the BIG storm, I accidentally caught a lightning strike w/ my point & shoot camera. I had thought I had it on video mode & was going to film a short clip... right when I pushed the shutter, a bolt appeared! I'll email it to you so Olivia can see it!

  8. Strange to think of rain and cooler temps in AZ compared to MN. Fun to see the little ones participate in photography. Success is in the learning. Wondering if she will create her own CDP blog in the future.

  10. It is like the lottery ads -- You can't win if you don't play. I hope Olivia keeps trying.
