I used the idea of a book for my header since this challenge is going to be a journal of my life over the years.
I hope you enjoy viewing these pages of my life as they unfold. I know I will...

Lucky Shot?

Some may say that getting a picture of lighting may be lucky, especially when you are taking pictures of a slow lightning storm with it only striking every couple minutes.

I had this picture in my head of lightning in the sky above the Jordan River Temple. Right away I got this shot but it wasn't what I had in mind so I kept going.

I took about 800 pictures and finally got what I wanted. Luck, I don't think so. My neck and back are killing me from sitting out on my deck for so long without a tripod and I new if I kept taking 2 pictures every few seconds, I'd get it eventually :)

That first shot is very cool and unexpected in the way the lightening is shooting across the sky. I really like it too.
