Driving to work on a cold morning, I had to stop to grab a photo of the sunrise.
South suburban Chicago, Illinois



The second shot was taken hand-held while walking along the beach in Treasure Island, Florida. It took about 6 attempts to capture the lightning which seemed to occur about every 12 seconds, so I just counted to 12 and snapped until I got one!

Storms are common over Tampa, this one produced lots of lightning but no rain (for us anyway). Tampa is the lightning capital of the world I've been told.

WOW that first shot is fantastic. The reds remind me of a lava flow.

Nice catch on the lightning also.
