Blue Lightning

Early storm of 2002 in March. Distant cloud to ground lightning strikes that gave off a nice blue hue on the night sky. Exposure: 30 seconds @ F/6.7


This storm was an unusual one. Temps were over 100 deg F on a number of days in late Aug and early Sept that year. A city record of 104 was set a few days after this storm. The unusually high temps led to some spectacular thunderstorms late in the afternoon and early at night.

New Orleans, LA
