Brewers Pilots Point Marina. Westbrook, CT

This was taken one muggy night while I was at a restaurant with a bunch of friends and family. I had gotten a weather alert on my phone and decided to walk down to the marina and see if I could see the storm coming in. Low and behold after about 10 minutes I managed to see a few strikes off in the distence. I probably hung around snapping off photos for about 15 more minutes, as it was just a beautiful night. I noticed the storm moving in and the strikes were getting a lot closer. I didn't want to get soaked, so I decided I had time for one more shot before high tailing it back to the restaurant. This was the last shot I took with a one and a half second exposure time set! Talk about lucky?! ENJOY!!

Frame is a complimentary color scheme with a very subtle and light mint green. 2px black stroke and a 90 degree dropped shadow with a soft shadow inlay. Nothing in this photo is enhanced in any way. Minor editing done for frame work and to correct camera distortion.


Note to Viewer: I am a trained storm spotter, Meterology student, Amature Storm Chaser and (Semi) Professional Photographer. In other words, PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT to do on your own without the proper training and knowledge of weather, storms and atsmosphere. Lightning is one of Natures number one killers. People can, will and have died doing this. Please do not attempt this. Do yourself a favor and stay indoors!
