Skywatch-Lightning

It is the end of the year where it is raining season again. I took these photos last week, it was scary to stand near the window when the lightning was strucking, I was afraid my camera would attract the lightning.

From a very dark black night to........

A stunning purple sky

Look on the left side where you could see the faint lightning which turn the dark black night to a purple sky......beautiful but scary when the thunder started to roar.




For other sky watchers, you can go to Skywatch blog.

Thanks for dropping by my blog with the nice comments.
Tabib, the 1st photo is just a dark black sky with nothing in it...lol. It was to show the difference in the sky (black and purple).

Hi Alice, I don't have a cooking blog. Maintaining SJ Daily Photo is quite a task for me. I doubt I will be able to maintain 2 blogs well. However, I really enjoy cooking very much. Probably can send you recipes of dishes that I have tried. Or try to work on a blog to share my recipes. I think my sis would go crazy when she sees me bring my camera into the kitchen and clicking away as I cook...hee...hee..!

alicesg said...

Hahaha...I always did that whenever we go to any restuarant, before they started attacking any food, I would click away the food. It looked good....I got a food blog but am revamping it cause it looked too messy.

The food blog only contain very little recipes. Looking forward to your food blog.
I did a video on my curry chicken but cant figure out how to use the microsoft movie maker to combine the various video so i might just post the video without editing...lol.
