Mad light... by vincentfavre Mad light... by vincentfavre
Here is a lucky shot...

I've tried to photography this place during about 30 minutes. I've done many and many 30sec exposure shots, hoping that a flash will fall there !

I was on a desert mountain road, in my car, because of the storm, and of course the rain !

The road back to my home was very dangerous because of some floodings and mudslide !! Fear, fear, fear for me...
But I'm ok, and my car too ^^


[Storm over Carro Blanc - Vanoise - FRANCE]

c'est dangereux aussi je pense sur les montagnes comme ça, est ce qu'il y avait un abri (ou une voiture)?

J'étais dans ma voiture, mais la descente fut exposée, la route s'était transformée en une vaste coulée boueuse.

Ooooh this is really nice. I once tried 'lightening fishing' from my window: [link]
I think it turned out nicely but I need some better place now. :>

Wow! I can't tell you how many of these I've tried to capture! It's so frustrating when you miss it in-between shutter releases!

That is SO AMAZING!!! Good for you! I'm glad you were blessed with this moment and were prepared to capture it!!

I've tried catching lightning in photos too on a few occasions (but never up in the mountains)... with mediocre success.
Congrats on your luck and kudos to your courage!
