The other night we finally had some rain in San Antonio and it brought along some lighting to boot.

In California lighting storms are pretty rare and I was feeling the itch to explore the light.

So I grabbed my cellphone, sent off a Twitter update– “Going for a late night drive in the rain. I love the rain. The sound, the smell, the splashing, how the light bounces around… Ahhhh :)” — and started snapping away.

It was freeing, just shooting for the joy of shooting. And aside from being chased off of a bike cop from under a freeway (I think he was just pissed that I woke him up to be honest), it was a pretty productive couple hours.

Here’s what I came back with. Nothing earth-shattering I know, but it sure was soul-filling. 🙂
