I took them using my blackberry and it was too windy to stay out there long but those were a few of the decent ones I got.
I love thunderstorms and lightning. I love sitting on the porch watching before the storm gets too bad. Something about being outside calms me down, especially before a storm. Nature is very calming to me. Being near the water is most calming but I digress. I love watching the lightning most. A black sky being lit up by a bright burst of lightning dancing across the sky intrigues me. I love how it so violently lights up some of the prettiest things in the middle of the night. It's kind of ironic that I find something that can be so dangerous and cause so much damage to be so beautiful and calming.
I dislike the damage some of the severe storms we get in Texas cause but I do love laying in bed enjoying it when I'm not sitting outside enjoying it. Thunder rolling, wind gusting, rain pounding against the windows, the room lighting up for a second as another bolt of lightning flashes across the sky. It's one of my favorite ways to drift off to sleep.
