March Storm Chasing

image of lightning at nightI certainly didn’t think I’d be storm chasing in March. At least not a lightning storm.

We’ve been having really mild, in some cases record high temperatures around here and it’s almost like summer. But it isn’t even officially spring.

The last two nights the sky has been lighting up like a penny arcade and tonight I decided to drive like a mad woman (very carefully, mom, I promise) out to my favourite lightning shot spot. For some reason it never rains as much in Douro, so after racing through the downpour to get ahead of the storm, I was able to get these two shots in before the rain came and chased me and my gear back into the car.

Wow.
