Friday August 9th was an especially electrifying evening in the Columbia River Gorge.
Blaine Franger set up his tripods and cameras in White Salmon and focus to the west and south west
as an amazing midsummer thunderstorm rolled up the Gorge and over Hood River

"It was a GREAT idea to go out and chase the storms tonight! It was NOT a great idea to go on my motorcycle!
Soaked to the bone... myself and my photo gear! Just got dried off and downloading photos... best storm around here in a LONG time!"
