Lightning bolt in Arkansas.

Posted in Moment, Travel by shannonsturgis on August 16, 2010

While in Arkansas, I took this photo from my parents’ backporch.  I don’t usually photograph nature scenes, let alone lightning, and it was fun trying to catch something I’m not used to catching.  After standing in the heat and bugs holding my camera in anticipation, I went inside for a break.  Right when I sat down there was a huge crack and the sky lit up.  My mom said, “Oh no!”  And I thought, “Oh no is right, I should have been out there.”  Then she finished, “Oh no!  I’m glad you weren’t out there.”   I guess her concern lies more in my safety than me getting a picture of lightning.  Moms.  Gotta love ’em.

      I was in Eureka Springs for 2 days with the family. I’ll be in Fayetteville for real in September for the Alabama game. Be prepared to tailgate.
