      I think Tobie did one of theses a while back, we have a few new members though so spotlight your home base.

      Here is the town of Buffalo Wy, my house lies in that second row of trees in the foreground. Where the wind is whipping up the snow.

      The view from the end of my driveway (the snow is now  back on the mountains where it belongs).

            I thought the mountain looked familiar but guess not , I have been by there on a ship out of Seattle but never directly visited.

      I’m sure I will have time to get some new shots of where I live soon. But here are a couple of oldies…

        These are wonderful, Leanne! Where are you from?

          Thanks Jasenka! I live in “Beautiful British Columbia,” Canada (It says so on the licence plates). We are in the interior, in a semi-arid area. If you drive 15 minutes in any direction the landscape changes dramatically, which I love.

        I like it Chris, Definitely speaks to windy and rainy , including the drops on your lens, and the long exposure effect on the clouds and tree branches ads a nice effect.

          Actually I think that is a spot on the sensor.  Grr.  It only shows up under certain conditions.

        Beautiful, Chris! I think you have used this spot before in your image. Is this a driveway? Country road?

      You are so fortunate to live in such a lovely place Robert!

      Facebook reminded me of this one taken from my porch a few years back. We live in an area know for its extreme electric storms. A lightning strike once took out a whole corner of my house (the neighbours picking up pieces of my wall in their yard). A few months later it struck again almost at the same spot with most damages inside the house.

        Wow! It is beautiful Tobie but your story is NOT helping my lightning phobia at all. A big bolt hit a tree behind our cabin when I was little and I have always had issues with thunderstorms. I braved a storm in a tent more recently, while my youngest sawed logs (she never woke through the whole storm) and my oldest counted between claps and flashes (very quickly)…1234…oh, it’s still far away! Not a big fan. But love seeing images like this one.

        That’s a great Capture Tobie, I bought a lightning trigger for the Camera about 6 years ago and have never even tried it, I think about it every time there is a storm, but guess I’m just a bit lazy.

          Thanks @robertapple. I reckon that trigger will make life a lot easier when trying to photograph lightning bolts. Can’t think that I’ve ever seen one.

        Hi Leanne, This is the road heading east out of my village, with only two farms and one private house at the end.  It is private road but a public right of way, so there is very little traffic, but we can go up there and not upset anyone.  Actually I gave the farmer a good photograph of his place and we are on waving terms now.  The view here is west towards the village.  I often photograph here, you are right.  🙂  Behind me are the farmouse, and a good sunrise if I ever get up on time…

        Tobie, remind me not to hang out at your place in storms, you draw fire!

      Nice idea, Robert.   I’m very late to the game for this throwdown.   Anyway, during the 2-months so far of covid-19 quarantine, I often take to wandering around my street at  midnight or 1 am, looking a light patterns etc.   Any little thing is exciting.  Here the clouds are reflected on the street.  (Even in mid-May 2020 my county still has increasing rates of infection, so I’m still homebound or behind masks in public.)   And I’m drawn to semi-abstract images like this.

        Never to late Anne, a creative shot to be sure.
