... And Mother Nature Danced ...

By
Real Estate Agent with Casmi Photography

Mother Nature was all dressed up and had no place to go.  So she decided to dance to her own tune.  As she swirled in her gown of white against a blue stage she began to hear the music from afar.

Lightning cloud

 

As the tempo increased, Mother Nature danced even faster.  So fast that her dancing shoes generated sparks. 

All so that we, the mere mortals on earth, could marvel at her talent and rhythm.

Fantastic, Carol! The light in the cloud almost seems to move as I look at the photo.

Rita - Thank you for the kind words.  Enjoy a prosperous week!

Maria - Thanks!  It was actually a fluke shot.  I just held the remote button down and ran through 100 frames to see if I could catch just one show of the lightening.

Tony & Darcy - Thanks.  Actually there was no storm, no rain.  All the lightning was contained in that one cloud.  It was very odd.

Andrea - I don't want to think what would happen if those fingers actually made it to those wires.  LOL  We would be in the dark out here in the boonies for a while, I'm afraid.

Mother Nature has danced a lot lately, I think she should rest awhile she is aging!

Hi Carol... WOW!  That's definitely a "high drama" photo!  Did you get a good storm from that cloud?

Carol, Of course the photo is spectacular but it made me think of mother nature....we either marvel at her beauty or are terrified of her temper!  And she can certainly change in a second :)

Caron - Nice way of saying that the rainy days are getting old!  lOL  Thanks for stopping by!

Debra - It's a conspiracy!  LOL

Steve - That cloud was actually about 35 miles NE of us.  We didn't get a drop of rain, but where the cloud actually was got a few short bursts.  And NO thunder either!  Truly different.  :)

Carole - She is certainly fickle, isn't she?  But she keeps life interesting.
