Last night before it started raining, Mother Nature put
on an amazing show of lightning... my Dad called
me out to the front of our house when he first saw it, telling me to come out
and "look at the sky!"
In the South we get some lightning
with storms, as well as a quite a bit of heat lightning during our
summers, and I know lightning isn't a rare thing.
And what I saw may not seem special
or neat to everyone, but this lightning was different from most
lightning I ever get to see. It was spectacular to watch because of the way
the clouds were; it lasted about an hour or two and every
time a flash of lightning came, the clouds glowed with light as if transparent
and you could see their dimension as clearly as if it were daytime...
and it appeared even brighter because other than the lightning,
the skies were pitch black.
While I was somewhat frightened of the lightning and loud thunder
that began accompanying it, I also thought it was rare and beautiful in it's
own way. In a certain aspect, seeing it was almost peaceful at the same time.
So, I decided to film a few seconds of this 'lightning show' to share.
I only wish it could come through as amazing and luminous on the video as it was
in real life.
Last night while watching that sky, I felt small compared to the massive
clouds lit up above me. Lightning can be scary, but there is something
awe-inspiring about seeing it like this.
Is there something you have seen in nature
that awed or amazed you?
Have a beautiful day
