The Agile Fox Friday Foto – 06.22.2012

After a year and a half of including a ‘pic of the week’ at the end of my weekly training summary, I’ve decided to let it stand as a post of its own.  I’m also implementing a rule that the Friday Foto needs to have been taken sometime in the last week.  No recycling.  I am doing this to keep me engaged in building my photography skills, and to make me work harder to get fresh shots.  Click here to see my previous Friday Foto posts.

I was driving home late one night last week when I spotted an intense storm going on to the east of where I live.  I had all of my camera gear in the car, so I decided to take a detour into Chatfield State Park and see if I could get some shots from up on the dam looking over the city.  I was up there for a little while when a park ranger drove by and asked me to leave.  Apparently the only allowed activities after 10pm are fishing and boating.  Bah.

I packed up and headed towards home, but the storm seemed to be getting more active so I set up in another location about a half mile from my house looking over my daughter’s elementary school.  It ended up being a more interesting setup than Chatfield, anyway.  I stayed there for about half an hour capturing some awesome cloud-to-cloud lightning activity in the distance.
