Energy...

I just got through taking this photo. I have had this sight spotted out for almost a month now. I wanted to get a shot of the "grasshopper" with lightning in the background. But whenever I went there the "grasshopper'" was active. So I just had to hope that lightning would strike at the perfect moment. Which it did, and I came back with the shot. This shot SCREAMS Texas!!!! I also think that its got good selling potential. I've got the whole capturing the lightning down, and now I am starting to incorporate other things in the composition.

I hope y'all like it.


Thanks.

-Ben

That is an awesome capture. Wow!

That photo reiterates Don't mess with Texas, and I think you hit the nail on the head when you said it has selling potential although I would say mega selling potential.

Can't wait to be back there in December.
