A Vince Lombardi Trophy is awarded each year to the winning team of the National Football League’s championship game, the Super Bowl. The trophy is named in honor of legendary NFL coach Vince Lombardi.
I grabbed this image on a visit to the Packers Hall of Fame in September of 2015. It’s been lying dormant on my computer’s hard drive since then just waiting for some attention. Today, being the Season Opener for the Packers, I thought it would be a good time to process and post it. You’ll notice, there is plenty of room for more of these in the Packers Hall of Fame.

A severe storm had just pushed through. On the horizon, the sky turned a wild, orangeish-red and the lightning continued to flash for awhile. I’m afraid I was a little late to the party. I should have gotten my camera out sooner. I was able to capture three shots with lightning – this, being the best one.
In the foreground you see the farm field, planted with corn in its early stages, soaked with water that reflects the brightness of the lightning. This shot was taken from a third-floor vantage point in the attic or our home. Very cool to watch.
This is one you’ll want to view in the larger version to see the fine detail in the lightning. You can do so by clicking on the image.
Starting the new year off with a new blog site for my photography. Welcome to PopsDigital.com.
I’m looking forward to the images 2011 will yield. I’ve recently stepped up my digital photography game with a new camera – the Sony SLT-A55. It’s going to take awhile to really be able to harness all the capabilities and features of this camera. I’m still researching and adding new accessories. I have my eye on a new high quality printer. (My mind says, “Yes, yes!,” my wallet says, “Not now, you fool.”) Nothing like new equipment to get your creative juices flowing.
Like all websites, this is a work in progress. I was intent on getting something up and running on January 1st. Obviously, there are more images to add, more tools to implement, more entries to post, but everyone has to start somewhere. If I waited until I had it exactly as I’d like it, it would never be ready.
I hope you’ll check back on a regular basis. You could also subscribe to the RSS feed or friend me on Facebook.
