This photograph was made during a summer night while storm clouds brewed off to the west. This was about a 30 second exposure or so, and lightning within the clouds to the left illuminated them from within. I like the power lines tracing across the sky.

This gum print was made by using a positive and negative transparency. For some reason I decided to print orange into the highlights of the clouds, but I did not coat the orange emulsion onto the house to keep it clean.
