photoblog image Monsoon afternoon....

Monsoon afternoon....

                  Seconds after I took this, from an open window, I stepped back to get the fright of my life, a simultaneous thunder clap and lightning strike right outside the window ! If I hadnt moved it could have been the shot of a lifetime, and the end of mine....

It;'s always seems more scary when the lightning strike and the thunderclap happen simultaneously. I'm pleased that you lived to tell the tale and get this fine shot.

Very evocative ...moody shot. Glad you are ok.

Wow! That was a close call, Frank. You were able to get this excellent shot in before the scare of your life, though. It looks as if it could be a master's painting.
