I was given information that this photograph along with a few others actual got some airtime on Channel 11 KCBD in Lubbock Texas. Did anyone have it recorded on July 22nd 2009? I didn’t get to see it!
How it happen…
I’m up late last night going through photographs from the 12yr old Cal Ripken State Tournament in Littlefield and it’s about 2-3am when I hear the crack of lightning. I thought to myself that I couldn’t get so lucky two nights in a row with lightning photographs…could I?
Well…I snapped on my Nikor 50mm f1.4 to my Nikon D700 and took off to see what would happen. I got out and looked all around Sundown trying to find the most likely spot to get lucky. It was coming down hard around Hobbs but seemed to far off…then I looked back toward Brownfield and Ropesville and the sparks were flying hard and heavy. I found a cool spot to setup and waited.
