I love a good thunderstorm. In 2002 I spent a month in New Mexico and saw incredible thunderstorms. I sat on a rooftop and watched a storm come in. You could see the lighting for miles. One of my dreams as a photographer is to storm chase. I have always been fascinated by storms and tornadoes. I realize that they cause destruction and I have to find a way to deal with that in my photography, but it doesn't stop me from wanting to witness this force of nature. In 2006 I filmed a storm with my digital image camera from my second story apartment kitchen window. The camera does not record sound so the music you hear is Counting Crows, Raining in Baltimore. The storm I filmed from last night is from the Flip Video that Ben gave me for Christmas. It captured the sound of the rain and the thunder. I walked all over the apartment to get different angles. I hope you enjoy them both!
