I took a little break from writing my next eBook last night to go shoot some lightning. I ended up in Jupiter with my buddy Bruce from SunnyStatePhoto.com, who manage to get an excellent shot of the lightning behind the Jupiter Lighthouse. Another photographer friend, Justin, from HDRcustoms.com, was out and about the same area. Unfortunately we didn’t meetup, but he manage to get a great shot from Hobe Sound Beach. As for me, all I got was lightning bolts in the clouds. It’s nothing special but I always have fun when I go shoot lightning storms.
