Lightning and abstract art from Phoenix Arizona

Every year I travel to Arizona in search of some awesome lightning photos. Some years are better than others, and to this point 2009 has been a bummer. I may get one more shot at it, but it's been very disappointing so far.

Last Thursday I got off some photos of a big storm coming into Phoenix from the Northeast. Unfortunately, before I knew it the storm was everywhere, and I was surrounded by lightning (not good when you'e standing in a field with a tripod). I didn't get anything worthwhile, but here are the two decent lightning photos that I did get.

Right after this the storm was over me and it was time to get back in the car:

I was getting rained on, and the wind was probably blowing at 40mph when I got this one:

So that's it for lighting. However, it's a long, dark drive back to Tucson so I decided to get a little funky with the camera. These are pretty much ROOTC, and are 20 second exposures. I thought they were pretty cool:

Very cool. I might try a little driving art myself.
