Back in January, I learned about a great place to get a shot of the Nashville skyline. I stopped by one evening and got this shot: Nashville

I knew then that I wanted to come back to this spot to try to catch a storm and maybe some lighting over the city. I thought Saturday was going to be my chance. I watched these severe storms make their way into Tennessee. The weathermen said they would be in Nashville at 6:00 pm, so at about 5:00 pm I got in my car and drove the 45 minutes to this spot.
By 6:15, the sun was still shining in spots…. No storm. 6:30, no storm. 6:45, nothing.
Finally by a little after 7:00 pm some dark clouds moved in, but no lightning. The entire time I was there I didn’t see one bolt of lighting.
I got some shots of the Skyline with the dark clouds and then headed home. Oh well, maybe I’ll try again another day…. or maybe not.
Enjoy:
