Worth It?

Uploaded by: Hurricane765

Saturday July 20, 2013

Brentwood, NY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: What a bust! I knew the way the storms were acting that once again I would not get a thunderstorm. However, I went to my usual spot for the sunset with the small hope that I would see some distant lightning once it got dark. Thus, between the many mosquito bites and the hot and humid air, I managed just this one shot from a cell offshore. It was the best I saw of the night but I don't know if it was worth it...

About Hurricane765

Hurricane765

UPDATED 7/5/13: Hello fellow photography lovers from all four corners of the globe! I am a 23 year old weather and nature photographer and just recently graduated from The State University at Oneonta with a Bachelors Degree in Meteorology. I have now been shooting for five straight years and have made outstanding progress in my art through various techniques, strategies, perspectives, and learning about photography as a whole. I was a photographer for the college at Oneonta in my last semester as a way of attracting prospective students but that ended upon my graduation. Also, I am planning my third local exhibition This sums me up in a nutshell so please, if you have of ~30 of my photos (though still no buyers haha). This is just a brief summary so please, if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or anything else, feel free to message me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Until then, keep shooting & Keep An Eye to the Sky Enjoy my photos? I have created a Facebook Page specifically for my photography called "Keep An Eye to the Sky". All of my pictures will be there, minus the GIFs unfortunately. Please feel free to become a fan and browse through my many photos from sunsets to birds to even lightning. Here is a direct AND revised link:"http://www.facebook.com/pages/Brentwood-NY/Keep- An-Eye-to-the-Sky/86982928692?ref=nf" - Hurricane Create your own visitor map!
