I have to believe that the Clearwater Beach area has to be in the top five places in the world for lighting strikes. I use to live in that area: It was unbelievable how often it happened! Had to unplug the computers and phones almost every day!

Then why doesn't the State mandate lightening rods on buildings?

This right after the article about Gov Crist looking to lead in alternative energy research. Now we need the follow up article about financing research into harnessing all that energy.

He used to have an awesome high resolution website, but I couldn't find it. I have actually seen his poster-sized photos matted and framed and they are inspirational. Don't judge his work by someone's attempt to save bandwidth-- his work has much more artistic merit.

Here's a description of his work, which is displayed at Black Oak Gallery in Casselberry:

The 'Lightning Stalker'- Live!

The most popular planetarium show we do all year, "The 'Lightning Stalker'-Live." David O. Stillings, the "Lightning Stalker," is a world famous lightning photographer. He has been the subject of several foreign documentaries as well as a couple of American ones. His lightning prints can sell for over $1000 apiece! All of his photos are taken right here in Central Florida. He has done his show for schools, businesses and conferences, including the American Meteorological Association last year. But none of those shows are as good as the ones he does in our dark, starry theater. David performs live using multiple slide projectors and our surround sound system. His often humorous and sometimes hair-raising stories about how he stalks his elusive and deadly quarry are enjoyed by all ages. His show concludes with a grand finale of almost 100 photos we have computer-synchronized to the "1812" and "William Tell" Overtures. Afterwards, David is available to answer questions. If you've never seen the "Lightning Stalker" before, you don't want to miss this chance. If you have seen the "Lightning Stalker" before, you KNOW you don't want miss this chance!(Lightning Stalker and SCC Planetarium Production)
