Watched the storms build up last night and thought it was a good opportunity to go and get some decent photos. Found a quiet bit of Cambs countryside and set the camerea up in the back of the car with the boot open to keep the rain of (Subaru estate). Got some nice shots with an old SLR and thought it was time to go when the first near miss occurred two feilds away - nearly soiled myself! Then drove through the rain back to my village, rain had stopped so opened the windows to get a bit of air in - flash BANG about 30m away in front of me! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA!!!!! Really did poo meself! the heat and noise made it feel as if someone had slapped my face - my ears were ringing and my nose and cheeks were red like a sunburn... That'll teach me. anyone else?
