Thunderstorm in the Moonlight
By: Alan Dyer
|Camera:||Canon EOS 5D Mark II|
A thunderstorm rolls across the northern horizon with the stars of Cassiopeia and Andromeda rising.
This was a perfect night for storm shooting. The storm was far enough away to not engulf me in rain and wind, but close enough to show detail and reveal its bolts of lightning. A waning gibbous Moon shone in the south lighting up the storm clouds to the north and turning the sky blue.
Meanwhile the stars of Cassiopeia, Perseus and Andromeda were rising behind the storm clouds, a nice contrast of Earth and sky.
I’ve been after a confluence of circumstances like this for a few years. An aurora to the northeast would have been nice as well. But you can’t have everything!
