I was en route from San Francisco to Boston, just about 12 hours ago, when lightning illuminated the skies near Lake Michigan, as I was over Chicago. It was a beautiful scene as the backlit clouds exploded with light, as stars illuminated above. Here are my photos below. The photos were made with a Leica M9 and a 35mm 1.4 lens. The settings were 6 seconds, handheld, at F1.4 at 1250asa.

I snapped these photos tonight starting at 5:41pm. I used an 800mm lens with a 1.4x teleconverter.

I photographed tonight’s so called “Super Moon” from the Fish Pier in Southie. I needed some type of scale to show how big the orange, reddish moon was at moonrise. I lucked out. The Spirit of Boston was cruising by just at the right time. The photo was snapped with a Canon 800mm lens 2000ASA with a shutter speed of 1/60th and an aperture of f5.6. The moon is the closest to the earth while being full, hence the largest, in almost 20 years. Check Sunday’s Boston Herald for more.
