Sunday Night Green Flashes

Just a few quick shots of sunset tonight. First, a small mock mirage flash above the Sun. Wish I had a little higher res on this one...they are pretty small but it's always a treat to get them before sunset.

Now a few shots of the sunset proper with the usual series of flashes behind different peaks on the mountains.

I got some new equipment so I am looking to try some lightning photography this summer when the storm season picks up.

I LOVE storms. I'm looking forward to some lightning pictures, hale! Feel free to practice on us.

Wouldn't that be called "flash" photography?
