Virginia Lightning

August 13, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Not long ago my husband Dave and I were driving across Virginia on 64, heading back home to West Virginia. We had a late start heading back and were not feeling terribly thrilled about a night ride. Driving across Virginia is one of my favorite things in the world, so I never want to miss seeing the gorgeous rolling hills, farms and country side. My prejudice for night driving was joyfully proven wrong by one of the most spectacular lighting shows I have ever witnessed. I drove about 10 miles before I could exit the highway and took an additional couple miles to find a suitable spot. I didn't have my deluxe tripod, but I did have my gorillapod. I rigged it to the side of my window the best I could and set my focus to infinity, closed down the aperture and let the shutter open for long pauses. I hope you enjoy a few of the photos I was able to capture.  Although, they could never do the storm justice!  Photos for purchase here: http://mollywolffphotography.zenfolio.com/p727907859
