Kelowna Thunderstorms!

It was almost a year ago to the day I caught my first couple lightning photos here in Kelowna during a thunderstorm.  

Last night's thunderstorm did however come with significantly more damage to the area.  Roadways have been damaged, flash floods started, lightning triggered wildfires, marine rescues were required and who knows what people in their vehicles had to deal with.

But every cloud has it's silver lining, and actually the clouds last night had several!

With the festivities over, I was left with no shortage of processing to do.  Luckily, I like to keep it pretty simple in the way of processing, if the picture didn't start off good in the first place, I won't ever waste my time trying to 'make it good'.
The sporting events ranged from freestyle motocross to volleyball, which translated into no shortage of non-stop action to be photographed especially at 7fps.
