Photographer's Note

As I mentioned before, in Summer Storm, I like the Florida summer storms. Tonight, Central Florida was covered by lightning filled clouds, and when the sun went down, the sky and everything reflecting it turned yellow, then orange, then reddish purple. I tried to add some of the elements mentioned in the reviews of my other storm photos, and so included more of the neighborhood, and I took the photo earlier in the evening for more color. This view is looking along several back yards, and over the fence you see apartment buildings. You can almost see the good neighbors helping each other with yard work two doors down.

Taken again with my little 2.3 mega pixel digital, set to 2nd light filter, and -0.9 (the lowest) brightness. I ran this through my program's despeckle and salt and pepper filters, sharpened, then cropped just a little off the sky for composition.
Since several have mentioned: I was sitting and resting my elbows on my knees - no tripod (yes, I do own one...), so the blur is probably more because of me than the little camera. :o)
