It is a very natural looking pattern, yet unmistakably made by man. But the natural pebbles, in the sand textured concrete, appeal to me in ways I cannot quite explain.

Photography After Dark - Crackalaka!

WOW! I'd like to say this photo shows I am a great photographer... but a lot of credit goes to the camera, my Nikon D80. I mean, that is one awesome camera.

I took a lot of pics, trying to capture the lightning. And I was delighted to get just a few that worked. Have you ever tried to take a picture of lightning?

This was taken in Clearwater, Florida, from Gulf to Bay Drive, looking North. I am looking forward to the next thunderstorm, so I can try some of the tricks I learned this time. I am finding I really enjoy 'photography after dark'. What about you?

Clouds Over Clearwater

Sitting quietly at home, I suddenly got this wild hair to head down to the bridge and get some sunset and sky shots. Wow, did I ever get an eyeful!

This shot was taken just as I was walking up the Clearwater Causeway Bridge, facing east. The sun was just starting to set over the beach hotels behind me. This system would bring gusty wind and rain just a little later.
