SNAPSHOT SATURDAY – 10NOV2012

Snapshot Saturday

A snapshot /random photograph that I like and hope you do too on yet again a wonderful Saturday.  :-)

This weeks snapshot / photograph is of a lightning strike that occurred during a strong storm as it was passing through Ferizaj, Kosovo.  The Republic of Kosovo / Kosova (Albanian spelling) is a country situated in the Balkans and used to be a region of Serbia.  There are still countries who do not recognize Kosovo’s independence.  The U.S. is one of the countries that does, but airlines and even Google maps still identify the towns and cities as being located in Serbia.

The storm blew up quite suddenly and put on a really beautiful display of lightning that lasted about an hour.  The area this occurred in is surrounded by hills and mountains. This area sometimes tends to get some strange weather.  It was really worth the effort and patience to observe this wild storm. Being patient  made it possible to get a few good photographs that I was happy with using just a point and shoot digital camera. I know there will be further opportunities for these types of storms to come through; hopefully before the snow starts to fall.  Last year we got hit pretty hard with snow storms.

Lightning Strike During A Storm In Kosovo

I hope you enjoyed this snapshot / photograph of a lightning strike as much as I do.  :-)

Please have a safe and happy Saturday and weekend. Happy Birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps who turns 237 years old today!  To you, my visitor, thanks so very much for taking the time out of your day / evening to stop by ‘The Vacation Wanderer’.  I really appreciate it!  :-)

About VacationWanderer

I have 'wandered' pretty much around the world but still have a lot to see and experience. My favorite things to do in life are travel, photography, and learning new languages or foreign language phrases to use along the way. "Hello", "Thank You", and "Please" in any language will open many doors for you. :-) I love to share my travel experiences with people and hope to inspire those who are still just thinking about it.
