Travel theme: Bright

Ailsa’s travel-themed photo challenge this week is Bright.

After visiting Catatumbo, Venezuela I had some amazingly bright opportunities for photos.  Sadly, my point and shoot could not quite capture the amazing display of mother nature.

Here are a couple pictures that others were able to capture with very good cameras –

Here is what I was able to capture –

Midnight could not catch a bolt but caught weird bright skies from pitch blackness.

Approx 1 am from pitch blackness to the appearance of daylight.

Here are the other bright spots from my Catatumbo, Venezuela trip.  I hope you enjoy.

Catatumbo lightning – From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Catatumbo Lightning (Spanish Relámpago del Catatumbo) is an atmospheric phenomenon in Venezuela. It occurs strictly in an area located over the mouth of the Catatumbo River where it empties into Lake Maracaibo. The frequent, powerful flashes of lightning over this relatively small area are considered to be the world’s largest single generator of troposphericozone, that is, ozone that does not replenish the stratospheric ozone layer.
