Thunderstorm Blues

January has been a bad month for good thunderstorms in the Windhoek
area. Most days have shown good promise for some awesome lightning, but
unfortunately I have no spectacular lighting pictures for January. Most
of the storms were out of the Windhoek area. Sunday night was pretty
spectacular with one to two lightning bolts every second, for about an
hour or so. Unfortunately it was too dark for the trusty old camcorder
to get any pictures of lightning, and the main part of the storm was too
far away. The clouds were constantly lighting up from within, making for
a great show. Let's hope that changes during February.

Cloud to Cloud Spider Lightning

These pictures were taken just before Christmas 2006. The full set is available frame by frame at the Lightning Storm Pictures Web site.

The 2 sets are available in Microsoft PowerPoint for download. Both of the lightning sets acually were about 1 second in real time!
