Sun, Rain and a Hearty Helping of Lightning along Jacksonville’s Scenic A1A
Rumor had it that a very rare unicorn-level car, the 10 million dollar Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR, was headed our way as part of the Gold Rush Rally that we posted about earlier today. So, after finishing up photos at the Ritz-Carlton, we headed south on A1A, to the spot where we had begun our afternoon. We never did get to see the car, but what we did get to see was just as amazing.
Here’s the latest edition of our infamous photo of the day! This photo was taken a few years ago in Jacksonville, FL, overlooking the lagoon at Huguenot Park. As the sun set, it provided the perfect back lighting for this amazing columnar thunder cloud. Cap that off with the sliver of the moon, and the great colors, and I just couldn’t help but stop and take a few photos. Enjoy!
The last week has proven rather stormy around the First Coast. After checking out the radar last night, I decided to take a drive out to the ocean near Huguenot Park. I took most of these photos along the way. I did some traffic time exposures in and out of the car as well. All images are 1920×1080 – perfect for HD desktop wallpaper!
(Please note, in-car photos were captured using a tripod and remote in a safety-conscious manner by a professional – don’t try this at home – or on the road… The same goes for standing outside near thunderstorms.)
