Hallelujah! by ruthmouch

Hallelujah!

It's raining!

Second night of terrific thunder and lightening storms/show!!! It's the only time I wish that I lived in a house with a panoramic view of something rather than my limited view of Hamra rooftops!

So after a couple of hours of listening to some superiorly loud thunder claps I decided to go up to the roof to see/hear more! Stuffing cell phone and keys into lycra leggings, camera strung around my neck I climbed two rickety metal ladders and summited our building!
As I admired the panoramic view of Hamra roofs and herds of satellite dishes I pondered the question of how exactly I intended to catch that rather unpredictable lightening....decided it may be a good time to see what exactly BULB does....and it worked!!! Not at all sure that this is the best way to do the job but at least i came home with a pic without getting wet!!

Image was a tad shaky as there was no room for tripod in previously mentioned leggings...but not bad for a first effort!
wow! i want to say really striking.. but that would be just silly :)
