Skywatch Friday - Stormy Skies

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Here's another picture from a summer storm, in fact the same storm which spawned the lightning that hit the tree across the road.

  4. Storms are some of my favorite skyscapes. I love your lightning shot on the SWF Command Center. I'm curious how dark it actually was when you took that one. I've always shot lightning at night when I could use the "bulb" exposure without overexposing. That shot looks like it might have been taken at twilight, or even before then, so I'm curious to know if it was actually as early as it appears to be or if the long exposure just turned night into day.

    Regardless, it's a phenomenal capture!

    That photo where you were the guest on SWF was just awesome. Did you have your camera ready once it started to rain?
