Storm Advisory

July 28, 2018

This monstrosity swept in and threatened to wipe Aylmer, Quebec off the map! Well maybe that's a little dramatic, but man, the DRAMA! Good-looking storm, that one. As seen from Andrew Haydon Park, Ottawa.

I achieved this by plunking down my tripod and setting my camera to take photos continuously. The storm was starting to get away from me as I tried to compose the bench properly in the dark, using the flashes of lightning to get my bearings. I settled on an exposure time of 6 seconds, so the clouds which were lit by city lights didn't become too blurred. I love the orange light contrasting with the blue-white light of the lightning. I love that the cloud frames the top of the image. I love the bands of rain. It just worked out really well.
