Storm damage, sunflowers

…and a bun­ny.

I went for a bike ride on Fri­day and anoth­er one today, Sat­ur­day.

Fri­day I snapped a pho­to of a rab­bit on BU cam­pus.

Bun­nies at BU. Nature is heal­ing.

Today, I went on a longer ride, and got pho­tos of some of the branch­es downed in the storm ear­li­er this week.

As I snapped pho­tos, a trac­tor came along and start­ed to drag the top of the pine tree off of 18th Street North. I tried to get a pic­ture but it turned out too dark.

I found a colour­ful com­bo just off Kirk­caldy, too, that remind­ed me that blue + yel­low = green.

And then, in the south end of town, I decid­ed to get a cou­ple shots of the sun­flow­ers (and the dill) grow­ing in the com­mu­ni­ty gar­dens.

And then, I went home, con­tent after a 26-km, 2‑hour bike ride.

Light show

Lightning

Last night, about 11:30 PM, I set up my cam­era in the spare room upstairs, to try and catch some light­ning dur­ing the storm.

The head­er image above is a com­pos­ite of about 15 frames where I cap­tured light­ning bolts. Below are two of the indi­vid­ual frames.

And here’s a video of the whole show (10s frames at 6 frames a sec­ond means that one sec­ond of video rep­re­sents one minute of real time).
