Kerkrade, The Netherlands – Mercury has reached the feel like temp 104 degrees. It’s humid. I’m on my third shower. I’ve a pounding travel headache that just won’t quit. I’m going to bed….
About an hour after I turned my face to the fan, I opened my eyes to what I thought was flashbulbs. There was no thunder. I opened the windows to my room and noticed the dramatic drop in temperature. Then… the rain. It was an electric storm like I’ve never seen before.
I didn’t think I’d have have time to setup my tripod, so I just sat really still with my shutter open, hoping to catch some of the dramatic skies. Little did I know that lightning would streak across the sky for a full 45 minutes.
