Deal of the Day


"Night Lighting"

Lightning Photos from, August 2003.
Before using our pictures, please review our usage policy.


Photograph Notes:  The lightning strike that I captured from Black Butte Ranch in central Oregon, as shown below, was one of several pictures that I was able to take that evening. The lightning bolt here is fairly small and was probably about 5-10 miles away. Lightning is fairly common in central Oregon as there have been two recent forest fires caused by lightning storms in the near vicinity -- one, the Cache Lake fire of 2002, received national attention. This photo is looking out over the pool house. The title is a play on words given the lightning at the left side of the picture together with the bright night lights from the poolhouse on the right side.
