I said back in June that I’d taken some rainbow pictures. Here’s one.

Rainbow in Pincourt

I took this on my street in Pincourt. It was almost a full rainbow, but I couldn’t figure out how to get it all in the picture.

Another great lightning shot

OK, so I will probably post lots more lightning stuff over the life of this blog. I just like it, I guess. Here’s one from Sam Javanrouh in Toronto. Look at the thickest lightning bolt. It’s striking the CN tower. Cool!

Lightning strikes again

Daniel S├ęguin from genestho.ca has done it again. Look at this great lightning shot from last night. Better yet, go to his site and look at if full size. I went out last night with my point and shoot and my camcorder. I got one picture and many minutes of video that I’ll post eventually ( unfortunately I’m having a bit of trouble with my ISP and so I have no access at home.) Daniel, you might remember, has been taking spectacular shots of lightning since the storm we had back in early July. And… sorry, back then I said it would be my last post on lightning… well I guess i lied.

North Bay windstorm

Tree on house Uprooted tree

My family and I visited North Bay, Ontario for a few days this week. At about suppertime on July 17th (the evening before we arrived) there was an intense wind and rain storm. It uprooted trees and sent some toppling on houses. Some ofmy in-laws (that’s who we were visiting) said while driving through the storm and just afterwards, they had to swerve to avoid the fallen and falling trees. Here are some pictures of the damage and there are plenty more here on flickr. Here are some more pictures on Flickr, taken by kden604.
BTW: These pictures were taken on my cellphone (motorola ROKR E1) and my camera (Nikon Coolpix 2200)

Lightning Post #4 (or5)

OK… this is the last time I’ll post anything about lightning. Daniel Seguin finally got his lightning shot, and what a great shot it is. Notice the way the building seem to be leaning in all different directions. Very Beetlejuice-esque.

Lightning strike… not!

I guess I wasn’t the only one in town impressed with the storm we had the other day. dseguin of genestho.ca was as well, and tried to get some shots of the lightning. Unfortunately his fingers were just too slow, but he did manage to get this great shot of his stairs climbing into the clouds.

If you’ve got some free time, take a look at some of his photos. Some of them are amazing, like the World Cup Fever one.

That was some thunderstorm

Wow, what a thunderstorm we got downtown a few minutes ago. We were all gathered at our window that overlooks Ste. Catherine street. The rain was coming down in sheets. The drops were the size of nickels and if you looked on the road, the rain splashing back up made it look like a low fog moving across the street.

And.. the wind. I thought for sure the trees on the south side of Ste. Catherine between Fort and St. Marc would fly off into the Provigo across the street, or even up into the second floor Toyota dealership.

And then… it was over. It was over as fast as it started. All told, the whole thing lasted about half an hour, from the time the sky first turned into a darkish yellow-brown, until the sky started to brighten a few minutes ago.
