Description

My second image of what now has been clearly recorded by a number of photographers as one of the greatest light shows over Crater Lake (Oregon). In some ways luck had me there, but the honest truth is that as a full time landscape photographer I spend far too much time studying the weather and I chased thunder cells to Crater Lake 4 days in a row to arrive at the timing here. I kept studying the overall weather in Oregon and each early afternoon I saw that Crater Lake specifically seemed to be the best bet for my investment of time and money to get dramatic light. The image was taken with the Sony A7R and Rokinon 14mm in continuous mode, which recorded just a few of the dozens of lightning strikes that evening. As the A7R was doing its job I was also shooting with my backup Canon 5D2 for various other compositions. All in all, about 3000 images were taken but only a few had enough variety for me to feel them worth posting.
