Photos of the day – 8.23.10

It wasn’t a spectacular storm day, but there are enough images for a posting.  Most of these are longer distance shots with the storms quite a ways away.  Today’s track was from the southwest to the northeast so nothing really got that close.

I’m getting spoiled, unless there is high drama, I’m not inclined to publish.

I do really enjoy trying to get both the sunset and lightning shots into the same images.

One of the storms did move north of the house and then the strike gave a great highlight to the rainfall.  This is a very small storm with the rain probably enclosed within less than one square mile.

Meanwhile, the parade on the western horizon marched along.

Because of the height of the cloud bases I suspect that the long strike is at least one to one and a half miles long and the others are possibly just as long, but they are obscured by the rain.
