We're having a little bit of a light show going down this evening :D This one is over the ocean! And yes, that is a dead bat hanging from the power lines... *sigh* it had to ruin EVERY photo *throws something at it*

also - the bat. We have a bat HANGING from our powerline. And yes, its wing is gripping onto the OTHER power line - hence its frizzled state.

I am sooo not afraid of storms(although I should be) but rather attracted by them ever since the lightning hit our school once and i was standing like 10 meters away (SO amazing).It completely destroyed the observatory (*cries*) but still, that was such a great day,lol.I always go out or at least sit at an open window and watch, like, I have to.

I heard that the weather is pretty bad over there. Like you have the worst "dry" in centuries.

yeah we went through a rough patch and many are still in it. but we're lucky at the moment. There's water everywhere and now we can sit back and watch the pretty light show. Although, it got a little close last week when the lightening hit the paddock 50m away from the house. now THAT was LOUD! lol!!!!

These are awesome! Really good shots since storm ones are hard to get. (even with the dead bat) ;)
ellymellyellymelly on April 21st, 2007 09:34 am (UTC)
thank you lol! and damn that stupid bat! but i wasn't prepared to walk out into the paddock (and be the tallest object) in the middle of the storm...

Sure. if you got hit by lightening talk about bad hair day :D. the dead bat amuses me though.

the pictures are sooooooo awesome, I'm not sure why I never thought to snap some photos of storms I'm so going to try next time we have one!
ellymellyellymelly on April 21st, 2007 09:23 pm (UTC)
i put my camera on night time LONG exposure then balanced it on the roof of a car for stability if that helps at all :D you really should take photos of the storm, it's lots of fun, especially if the storm is far enough away that it's not raining where you are :D
