I love how you can see the winding motion. How did you catch it?! I've been that close to a bolt too. Hurt! >A<

This is a staccato bolt, so it flashed several times in the same spot, each slightly different. That's why it looks like it's winding. It was loud. :D

Awesome! The one I saw was down the street from me. Struck a huge tree that had been there forever. It didn't burn, but it like... shattered. Huge splinters of tree went everywhere. One went through the neighbor's window. They moved out within the next week :D lol

Very awesome. :) We had a tree shattered apart by lightning some time last year, it was alarming to see the radius of splinters that shot out from it. :)
