Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures

This is my 2012 in photos.   Some of these photos were taken with projects in mind such as the abandoned buildings, some were just subjects I came across, and others were planned trips to some of my favorite places like Gettysburg.  I hope that you have had a great 2012 and are looking forward to an even better 2013.  Enjoy and let me know which photo you like the best.

As the Lightning Strikes…

Recently on my way home I was watching an approaching storm.  The more I watched the storm the more I became interested in photographing the lightning.  I thought for a bit and then remembered a great place where I could get on the top of a hill and get a good view of the storm.  In all the years I have been taking photos this is the first real attempt at lightning and I was pretty surprised at the results.  I know after this experience I will be watching for more opportunities to photograph lightning in the future.  I hope you enjoy these three photos.
