Summer Storms

I was in Lantzville for the weekend and on Saturday night we had a crazy sunset followed by an even crazier lighting storm. Before the other weekends storm I can’t remember the last lighting storm so this has been a very lighting filled summer which mixed with our hot dry weather has not been good for our forests which all seem to be on fire.

Summer Lightning Storm

Well this weekend has had some interesting weather. On Saturday we had a pretty good lightning storm which is pretty rare here. I happened to be out at Clover point when it started so I was able to get a few photos. Who knew lighting is unpredictable and hard to shoot?

The following are a few attempts to catch the lighting that I still enjoyed even though the lightning did not cooperate.



It was quite an amazing sight to see, I am really glad I decided to try to get one more shot before I left or I would have missed the display. Just goes to show you that you can never stay too late.
