Lightning, and Other Storm Pictures

Dodge County, Wisconsin - July 7, 2008

Fond Du Lac County, Wisconsin - October 18, 2007

September 21, 2007 - With a squaline approaching from the west, I headed to the east side of Horicon Marsh, and faced west towards Waupun. I'm always hoping to get a picture of one of the prison lights getting struck, which happens fairly often. Still no luck.

October 1, 2006 - On highway 49, half way through Horicon Marsh, I got these lightning pictures aiming to the west, and south. Check out the neat looking clouds in the first (8:18PM), and second (8:24PM), pictures, and the angle of the rainshaft in the third (9:50PM) picture.

Columbia County, Wisconsin - June 6, 2006

June 30, 2005 - A squal line was approaching from the west, so I headed to the east side of Horicon Marsh, to shoot lightning to the west across the marsh, getting pics 1-4, between 1:30 and 2:45AM. As it passed over, with lightning in all directions, I decided to aim north, and got the 5th picture at 2:51. After passing over, I aimed east, and got the 6th picture at 3:04. Total lightning pictures that night: 34.

Waupun, Wisconsin - June 23, 2004

May 24, 2004, while storm chasing with my brother in Iowa. We pulled over for some good photo oppertunities of a nice updraft base. Using the Lightning Trigger, I got the following shots including the first shot, striking only about a mile out in the field. The second is a close-up of the base of the bolt.
