Storm Approaching

As some of you know, I live right on the water and have a spectacular view of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Manhattan skyline. This is the view I have from my terrace and living room if I look the other way, I have Jamaica Bay and the Manhattan skyline.

New York has been having its share of rain. We've had so much rain, I feel like I live in London. But anyway, I was sitting in the living room and I saw these dark clouds rolling in. They rolled in so quickly, it became dark in an instant. So, I ran and got my camera and took a few pictures from my terrace. I actually got lucky and captured the lightening. And yes, that is a surfer heading into the water.. That narly dude is still looking for that big wave...


A surfer heading into the water as the storm approaches..if you click on the picture you will see one surfer riding the wave in..

Not sure if you can tell, but those little blobs in the water, are surfers but again if you click on the picture you get a better view...



The lightening was really spectacular, I lucked out by capturing Mother Natures display.

Oh my goodness-how awesome are these photos? I really like the one where you caught the lightening-how neat. And you already know that I envy you your weather-and your view :-) Thanks for sharing a part of your world. I so enjoy seeing it.

These are fantastic pictures Deb. Cathing the lightning is amazing, that's sometimes so hard to do. I would love to see a picture of the Manhattan skyline, New York has always been on my "list" of things to do and places to see! Someday.... :-)
