Curvy Lightning

I didn't get as many lightning photos last summer as I wanted, but fortunately I have several that I haven't posted yet. Here's one of them taken from our deck.
Fortunately it hit behind that house, not on the house. Join the skywatching fun at Skywatch Friday.

  3. Wow, great capture! I've never shot lightning before but I'm assuming it's a difficult subject to master. There's not a lot of lightning here in western Oregon.

  14. Wow! Just stunning lightning photo, Al! I agree with you, fortunately it hit behind that house, not on the house.

    Love the plant on the left of the path of that house, too. I think it is "Cycas revoluta (sago cycad, Japanese sago palm), is a species of gymnosperm in the family Cycadaceae, native to southern Japan."

    Hope you hava a very good weekend.

  16. Ah Al, you and your magnificent lightning shots - the Blogosphere would be bereft without them!

    Bet the folks living in that house got a bit of an adrenaline hit when that lightning bolt struck so nearby! I can almost feel and hear the crackle of it!
