Chasing Lightning – Silver Sands State Park Milford CT


So, I set out to shoot the SUPER MOON again, but stormy skies had different plans for me. I’m an opportunistic kinda guy, so I decided that I was gonna shoot the beautiful, angry skies presented to me. I made it a challenge to myself to capture some lightning. Well, I stood around for 2hrs and shoot over 600 photos and I got 2 decent shots. Ahh, the beauty of patience building exercises found only by being a photographer.

Next time you’re shooting anything, even with an iPhone, challenge yourself with something. Make it a goal to capture something specific. You’ll find yourself waiting and you’ll start to learn the beauty of waiting for that perfect moment!
