Photographer's Note

Sometimes I have those days that I'm bitter and that I necessarily want to have a good picture.
Then I take a little more risk than usual.
That morning, my wife and I woke up because of the lightning/ thunderstorms.
My wife looked at my face what time it was because I wanted so badly for a while to capture a lightening image/ picture.
Once on the beach arrived, I saw special appearance.
Left was the weather bad and right was the weather dry and the sun had risen quite for a while.
I didt make it difficult for me and took the first rows of piles in the sea and went back down and made myself as small as possible and covered my camera with my coat.
a few minutes later it was suspiciously quiet. I saw no more gulls, which first ran cozy next to me and it started to rain harder.
I walked quickly to the nearest hotel and hide me there
Not a moment too soon, a few minutes later the rain and lightning broke loose, at the spot/place where I was before.
A few minutes later again, I went back. The sky was completely cleared and the first people were swimming in the sea.
That day was my birthday and I thanked heaven that I could photograph that moment.

Then I do want to warn everyone! Shooting at the beach with thunderstorms is very dangerous!
For me it was the first, but also the last one to do it, it's to risky.
I also have a new challenge, my wife and I expecting a baby in April.

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy 2012.

Friendly regards,
