Santa Barbara got a pretty major thunderstorm last night. There was more lightning last night than I’ve seen in the past 10 years in total. Unfortunately I was in a good editing groove on my computer and wasn’t finally drawn out the door until past 11. At first I thought to head to the Santa Barbara Mission, to get some lightning in the background, but by this time the storm had already passed over the mountains. I next preceded to head up 154 to the lookout on the other side of the pass. One problem, I only had my 12-24mm lens with me, and the storm was moving away. It was still beautiful to watch even if I knew I wouldn’t get any good pics.
