Every so often, I receive an email message from a friend, family member or coworker with various weather photos attached. The photos are always neat to see and I am happy that these folks think of me when they see weather-related photos. Please, keep them coming!
I will periodically post one photo from these emails and talk about it, as there are plenty of photoshopped weather photos on the net. There are also a surprising number of real photos with false explanations. Finally, some of these photos are uncredited, and so I will attempt to find the original creator and link it here.
THESE PHOTOS ARE NOT MINE, PLEASE DO NOT CREDIT ME FOR THEM!! Too many times storm chasers and photographers will work exceptionally hard to take the right photo, just to have someone else take the credit. I will attempt to find the original creator, and if you have more information (or it is you!) please let me know.
With that, I bring you Weather Photo #3:
This photo seems legit, and its caption, “Cloud to Ground Lightning” is a good description. I have no reason to believe this is a fake photo.
This photo shows up in several Flickr and Pinterest galleries, according to Tin Eye, but I haven’t seen any legitimate credit for this photo.
Real, accurate, though uncredited. Enjoy the photo!
Don’t worry though, I will have some fake ones and inaccurate ones soon!
Thank you for reading my post.
