(SeattlePI)   See cool looking lightning? Why not try to catch it on video while standing in an open field? Watt could possibly go wrong?   (seattlepi.com ) divider line

If I saw lightning like that, I would not have stuck around. I would have bolted.

Cool lighting in an open field? Like a baseball stadium or something? Yeah, you might want to get out of there or you'll get a beanball to the head or something.

And if the typo gets fixed:

I'd just tie my camera to a kite to get the shot. That should do the trick.

You're clearly more grounded than Robb Montejano of Seattle.

Led lighting runs cool. Thats why it's so efficient. Seems like that would be a boring vid though, subby.

Cool lighting? Who puts a lamp in a field during a thunderstorm? Though I understand the temptation to take a picture of something that dumb.

Nope.

And I want to revisit that since I only saw it once when it first came out in the theaters.

I got an ad above the article for "Unique plasma welder". Seems appropriate.

It was like a bolt from the blue!

FTFA: Robb Montejano was outside walking across a field and saw lightning, so he decided to record the storm with his camera phone. "It was just on the off chance that I can catch the lightning on film,"

What a "film" camera phone might look like (if it were in fact, also a phone).

What could go wrong?  Well, off the top of my head, he could get run over by a drunk off-roader.
 
2014-08-04 04:24:30 PM  
My favorite part was the pin sized light (much less impressive than I'd hoped), and then BOOM of thunder as he cries in pain, drops phone.  He sounded so happy before that.  I hope he still is happy.  He got exactly what he wanted.

Be careful what you wish for, buddy.

I hope I'm not the 1st, but subby said lighting when I think he meant lightning, like in a storm.

That's an acetylene torch. And it's running rich...
 
2014-08-04 06:38:04 PM  
Recessed? Track lighting? Theatrical lighting? Floodlights? Incandescent, LED or halogen? Sodium or mercury-vapor...so many questions left unanswered.

Clear blue skies? Looked more like smiting to me.
