The God of Heaven thunders.... Loudly.

Taken 5/30/13.... with my wife at the drivers wheel as we head down Interstate 40 headed back home to Conway.  Aprox 10 second bulb exposure, with the bolt closing out the exposure.

Stolen Glory

Stealing the color from this flower feel kind of criminal .. but then, you get to see the other elements in new ways.

Mastodon sighting, Central Arkansas

Out of curiosity, what is the difference between a mammoth, and a mastodon.

From Easter Sunday 9I am that far behind) between Bigolow, Arkansas and Wye Mountain.

Photo Buff stuff:  This is my first time to try this approach. This is actually a blend of three "identical" pictures shot in rapid succession but at different levels. It would have been impossible to get detail in the sun and cloud area, and keep brilliance int he foreground. Our eye can do that range, but a single exposure generally cannot . So I took a dark, a medium and a light exposure then blended them together in Photoshop... using the lightest image for the foreground, the middle image for the barn area.. .and the darkest image for the sky area. I stacked the images on top of each other, then erased parts of each. There may be easier or beter ways to do this same thing but I haven't learned HDR yet.
