flashes abounded, but no electrical fingers. i kept getting awesome purple skies and clouds, but i really wanted a good bolt. i got into the car and headed down to a field and watched the skies for those bolts so i could freeze them on digital film, but alas, still only flashes. the majority of the storm was one city over, so the lightning was a distance away and we didn't even get any thunder.
while i waited for about an hour, the rain started drizzling, so i opened up my umbrella that i had gotten in darjeeling and waited with the chirping crickets for the sky to rip open with more of God's handiwork. alas, i only got a few shots out of 100.
