James a very beautiful photograph that describes accurately what can be seen in the image. I would be very happy if it was one of mine.
What a wonderful moment, James ! Congrats !!
A cracker shot (pun intended!)! Brill, James, and thanks for the sharing.
Muito legal essa foto, mas ai… que medo!!!
Very scary but amazing shot! Congratulations!
Superb Image well done
Splendid shot. Great capture!
A marvellous photo which certainly takes my admiration in really strong measure. It is superlative – and I mean just that.
In colour the photo would be very good indeed but I like the way you have elected to use monochrome. It adds testament to the austere bleak starkness and overall sense of desolation and emptiness of the whole scene. The heavy growling storm clouds above, accompanied by the oh so fortunate bolt / dagger lightning only adds to the sense of serious loneliness and abandonment.
I take BIG, BIG fancy to this photo. It innately appeals to me. If I were the author of the photo I would be immensely pleased with it.
Thanks for a memorable shot.
Thank you Laurence!
I can see five faces / figureheads in the lightning bolts here. Spot them! It is a bit of fun!
Simply amazing, Paul.
Well said, Ginnie.
Paul’s wondrous photos never fail to amaze us.
The VOTG (Valley Of The Gods) offers Paul, our photographer and regular contributor to the CAS’s Photo Gallery, much in the way of portrayal of very dramatic drama in the heavens above.
Marvellous – as ever!
Thanks you Ginnie and Laurence.
Stunning. Some how, that seems to not even describe it…. Paul…… WOW!!!!
Paul. What can I say but be mesmerized by such a lightning show and you got it captured!!! How artistic can you get!
Terrific shot, Paul!
Very dramatic and most atmospheric.
As ever, another masterpiece from you. As one CAS member said a wee while ago, you spoil us with great photos (not the exact words but something similar)
Oh, Paul — another one of your amazing photos! The skies in Utah seem to be even more beautiful than those you caught in California.
Thank you Laurence and Ginnie!
This is certainly some dramatic photo, Paul. You sure get some damn awesome weather in your “neck of the woods”, so to speak. I have not seen forked lighting for ages.
I think the lightning bolt on the RHS of the photo is akin to a pterodactyl creature running fast away from the lighting forks on the LHS – maybe a bit too hot for it or sensing its tail maybe be torched!
Grand stuff from you, as ever. Many thanks.
Paul, your pics are always amazing. This one certainly fits in that category. I always hide indoors when the weather gets like this.
Please keep ’em comin’.
Thank you Laurence and Ginnie. And Ginnie, you have the right idea, I don’t advocate or recommend
going out in thunderstorms, and especially not loitering around a metal or graphite tripod. Just don’t.
Thanks much, Rachel, for this shot. I like it much!
I recognise the view very well. Culver Cliff – the chalk cliff in the far distance leading to Bembridge – a small and attractive quiet village – is home to the only surviving windmill on the Island and, thankfully, preserved by our National Trust.
5 stars from me – nice heebiejebbies shot – your house?
I certainly go along with Linda’s comment. A truly dramatic shot, electrifying (pun definitely intended!).
This could be likened to a spine chilling scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s film, Psycho.
Love this one, James. Those sleepy eyes and the electrifying twitch! Quite beautiful and somehow funny at the same time.
Great shot indeed!
Well captured, Bastiaan!
Fabulous! This photo certainly has big drama about it. I just love this type of shot. Composition and exposure are perfect. Great capture, Lawrence (we share the same namesake but our spelling is different)
I think this would make fine material for the next Society calendar for 2017. I wish you good luck.
This gets a 5* rating from me, Jose, with no hesitation. I love this impressive photo much. This is cloud drama!
The more you look at this photo you could interpret it as a lake (bottom third of the photo) reflecting the vista above. There are two ways of looking at this sumptuous photo.
5/5 picture, Jose. Well captured at the precise moment. Good composition and colors. Congrat!
That’s a great photo.
