Happy New Year!

This is my favorite post from 2007, from a storm back in May. The power of storms in Colorado is amazing, and I love to watch and hear a good storm go through. I hope it helps you jump start your new year!

Wow! You actually captured lightning! Great shot.

I look forward to visiting your blog more often this 2008. And you're welcome to mine, too! For some reason, my link was not included in the participating blogs for the 1st of January 2008 theme day. Sorry I wasn't able to visit your blog sooner. I was in transit the whole of yesterday. I am now back in Norwich after the most fantabulous time at home in Manila.

Happy New Year to you and everyone you hold dear!
