Lightning strike in Sedona

Lightning Photography Sedona Arizona

With all the excitement of this past week, I haven’t posted a blog or a photo since Tuesday night. For awhile I was too busy to think about it, then I couldn’t do it if I wanted to because the website had crashed numerous times and finally we had to put it on a different server with a static page.

Well, now I’ve moved to a faster, more reliable host and I’m back in the mix of blogging! It’s amazing how much I missed it!

I want to write a lot about what happened with the haboob video, the viral-ness and all that jazz, but right now I’m on vacation for a few days in Sedona with my family.

Of course, I still took a few hours to get outside and shoot some lightning. I had no choice. Sedona was lit up on all sides tonight and the tough part was just aiming in the right spot. I usually don’t catch a lot of “daytime/dusk” lightning, but I got a couple tonight.

This is the first time I’ve ever processed a lightning photo using my vintage preset I created using onOne’s Phototools (which by the way you can get for a smoking deal right now, check it out).

I like it…it’s something different.
