While on a Daytona Beach getaway one summer, Clint Blevins caught the spectacular drama of a fine summer storm from the comfort of his beach-side lodging. Nature’s fireworks unfolded before his eyes so dramatically and at such an opportune moment, it seemed as if the show was meant for his sole enjoyment.
The scent of the sea air and the sound of waves washing up on the shoreline is known to be relaxing, and does wonders for one’s state of mind. Clint decided to take some time off to head down to Daytona Beach, Florida, to enjoy the ocean atmosphere.
Yet, one day the sky started looking ominous and the weather began to get pretty squally, so to be safe, he took refuge indoors to enjoy the storm from the comfort of his beach-side abode.
Clint decided to take in the squall as one would an incredible film or drama, or a symphony perhaps. He grabbed his video recorder and started filming the seascape just before the storm. From the footage, one can almost feel the electricity in the air.
Not moments after he started recording, the most incredible thing happened right before his eyes that literally took his breath away: nature’s fireworks on display solely for his viewing pleasure!
Out of the clouds, a huge bolt of lightning exploded directly in front of the camera upon the ocean waves in a brilliant flash, lighting up the gloom for a split second before fizzling out.
Clint was awestruck, to say the least. It certainly made up for lost beach time, and gave him a precious memory to share!
Thank heavens there was no one swimming at the time!
