Last week's storm, which broke the long run of hot sunshine, also began a conversation in our household about "orbs" in digital photography. We took several photographs of the rain, darkness, and thunder and lightning, and because of the lack of natural light, the flash on the camera bounced off the rain drops producing the interesting effects shown.
Apparently there are quite a lot of people who believe that orbs are an indication of ghostly presence. Whatever you believe, they do look pretty!
