04 Jul Fireworks of a Different Kind
First day here in Phoenix, spending most of the day relaxing by the pool and trying to stay cool in the 100+ temps. How do you people handle these extreme temps for extended periods of time?! Did you get lost in the desert and just give up trying to find a way out? Anywho, it’s nice for like… a week, max, and after that I’m done. So it’s the fourth of July. If you could pick a couple locations where you can count on a nice, dry evening for a fireworks show, I bet Arizona would probably be on that list. Well, just so happens I’m in Arizona, Phoenix of all places, and we had an amazing lightning storm roll through. I couldn’t imagine a fireworks show took place tonight, cause it was raining hardcore (think that’s why they call it a monsoon). Restricted to the hotel room, all I could do was watch and listen as nature put on it’s own fourth show. I tossed a camera on a tripod and attempted to capture some bolts of lightning off the back porch. It was a small window of the sky to capture, but I did get a couple captures. Nothing special, just something fun.
