Old Field, NY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I had a feeling storms would not make it across Long Island so to increase my chances of seeing lightning, I went to Old Field (just north of Stony Brook) hoping to see some across the Long Island Sound. It paid off big time with a storm cell that lasted from about 8:30-9:30pm that produced many CGs and I managed to get a few on camera. I have others which I hope to upload in the coming days but I thought in the meantime, here is my best shot.

About 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.
