California Lightning Sunsets

in hive-185836 •  10 months ago  (edited)

Last night gave us a rare weather event that is very uncommon and occurs just a few times a year.
Thunderstorms rolled in quickly off the Pacific Ocean and gave us an hours long lighting show.

Chasing rainbows seems much easier than trying to catch lightning. Here was my best attemps. Taken Monday, Octobert 4th, from
Ocean Park, California

Wow! These shots are incredible! I heard they evacuated the beach and there were strikes down in PV. Any strikes by you?

Yeah man! It was remarkable and rare as we know. This was a bit scary as we all got txt alerts saying to leave the beach and go indoors. I was on my bike up by Bel Air Beachclub, like 5 miles away peddling hard to get back.

Crazy.... must of got a great workout biking back before getting hit! Did you get stuck in the downpour? Where people evacuating the beaches?

Yes the lifeguards had bullhorns on telling everyone to get off the beach and seach shelter. I tried to get home before the lightning and rain and to get the car cover off!

Such dramatic sky, I like the one with Ferris wheel and orange sky at horizon, but also the lightening :)

It was so surreal watchign this transform over the beaches and the ocean. We don't get lightning here in Southern Cali so everyone was shocked. Was lucky that the Ferris Wheel happen to be blue, just like the skies.
