Started as the usual gorgeous sunset, then the wind started picking up, then....some action.

Wow, these are great. In the second one, is the lightning IN the cloud or behind it?

I don't know, Annie. Clouds can get pretty sizeable and dense so I'm guessing it was in it.

I think my area is one of the world's leading places for lightning strikes. I'll tell you......there have been strikes close enough that you can feel them and the accompanying thunder sounds like a hand grenade from about 30 feet away.

When I first moved here I started hearing people say...'when thunder roars, go indoors.' I thought, yea, right.......well, lets just say I have changed my feelings on that little saying. ;-)a

Been down to my brother's place, in Spring Hill, and witnessed a lot of them, but never was lucky enough to have my camera ready.

Not sure what you're saying. If you mean that I made these with PS....that would be no. Only thing I did was to saturate the colors a bit.

Very fascinating weather! I was vacationing in Oldsmar earlier this month and I didn't see anything like that. Were you at the long end of the lens when capturing the photos?

I used my 24-105 F4L and this was shot at 35mm.

Don't know how long you were here but I see this kind of thing 3 or 4 times a week. The storms usually come up pretty fast and leave the same way. It can go from pretty, sunny skies to a torrential downpour with lots of thunder and lightning back to full sun inside of an hour.

Then, of course, the humidity ramps up to about a million....you can hardly breathe.

I was there for 8 days. Thinking back, we did have one period of torrential downpour. I didn't think to pull out my camera then. But I got some really nice sunsets in Clearwater! Overall, the heat/humidity was too much for me. I missed my temperate Canadian climate!
