Horizontal Lightning

I'm digging into my 2011 archives for this week's Skywatch Friday post, and I think it's perfect for Ein Stuck Himmel (a piece of heaven) too. It's a lightning shot which I haven't yet published.
It was taken from our back deck. It should only be a few weeks before our first thunderstorms of the year start cropping up, and hopefully I can get some good shots this year!

  19. I don't know how to take a shot like this yet. Perhaps 2013 will be the jackpot year to learn.

  21. Vertical lightning is the norm here so to see horizontal flash and take a photo is phenomenal. Thanks for showing this.

  23. Hello, Al!
    Here we have been much hot, much rain at evening, with lightning and thunder!
    Yesterday I saw a documentary on tv showing that Brazil is the country that has the bigger quantity of lightning in the all world! Wow!

    Hope you have a nice week ahead.

  24. Fortunately, there's very few thunderstorms in my city. But it's a shame, I can't do these great photos.
