It looked like the lightening changed its mind and started back only to come back again. A most interesting picture.

About weatherfanatic2010


My name is Dylan and I'm 22. I live in a little town called Bowie, Texas. I've been taking pictures my entire life, but 3 years ago I bought my first DSLR a few months before I went storm chasing for the first time. I'm addicted to both now. I've had 3 successful years of chasing and I've seen 22 tornadoes and countless supercells. recently I've become interested in astronomy and astrophotography. Most of my pictures are either weather or space related but I enjoy photographing just about anything! Anyways, enjoy!
