Crackling Lightning

It's been a while since I put up a really good lightning shot, so here's one of my favorites from last July.
As is common in my lightning photos, the streaks of light at the bottom of the photo are cars. And of course, it's my Skywatch Friday entry for the week.

  18. Great photo! We don;t get enough electrical storms for me to practice capturing lightning, so I am always impressed by these photos.
    Have a Happy new Year!

  19. That's really something. In Seattle we hardly ever get thunder and lightning, more's the pity. I love thunderstorms. The idea of capturing that strike is just amazing to me.
