Summer is here and the thunderstorms will be rolling in. We had a good storm last night to kick off the season. Here are a few shots from last nights thunderstorm looking east toward Tallassee, Al.
Several bolts pierce through the rain as a storm passes near Tallassee.

Here’s a quick tip you can try next time you go our shooting. Try to frame your subject. By that I mean use a window, building, doorway etc… to essentially create a “frame” in your photograph. It will not only reinforce your subject but also create an interesting composition for your photograph.
You can do this with your expensive DSLR or your iPhone (which is also expensive).
Below are a few examples. Enjoy!

Doorways are an obvious choice. A shop owner in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
A mechanical wheel frames the man operating it...
