Enjoy this photograph of the Northern Lights in the twilight of day. This is how most nights that have northern lights start out before they break out into a beautiful display of curtains and streaks. Rarely do they just fade back to the north without some sort of brilliant display. Photo taken in Southern Ontario, Canada by David T. Chapman
My earliest childhood memory is of a big crack of thunder and I turned to my mom and asked her, “what was that?” Maybe thats one of the reasons I have such a passion for nature and weather.
I am expecting even larger waves to be crashing in at Lake Ontario today! I know anyone looking at this that lives along the ocean is thinking that is nothing. But on Lake Ontario it is quite large and today will be larger yet. I will be doing some wave photography and possibly video today!
My first posting, my name is David T. Chapman and In the early morning hours of October 19th, 2011 I woke up to the sound of thunder. I am a professional photographer and intentionally left my window open just incase a thunderstorm came before what my alarm clock was set for(4am). It did, hitting at around 3:20am. When I know a storm system is moving in. I will often wake up very early for 2 straight mornings, so that if something does hit, then I can be alert and be ready for it. Sometimes it backfires though, sometimes the storm hits around midnight and I’ll end up staying up until that time and chase then, then come home and crash. Tonight unfortunately we only had a dozen or so flashes and it was very sporadic so I didn’t get anything. In my 10 year career I have got over 400 lightning shots not including sheet. More stuff that I will be posting soon. Northern Lights and Lightning in the same photograph and more thunderstorm and fall colour photography! You can find me on facebook David T. Chapman, the picture will show up with lightning and my name on it. @Northof44Pics on Twitter and my website is www.naturebirdsandweather.com
