This picture shows a distant shelf-cloud with a lightning strike behind it. Unfortunately the shelf-cloud didn't pass right over me, but several miles to the north, so I couldn't get a better picture.
On the evening of august 27 2016, going into the night of august 28, several severe thunderstorms lit up the skies of the eastern parts of the Netherlands, going into Germany. These storms had a high frequency of lightning over the course of several hours. This provided a nice opportunity to take some lightning pictures.
The pictures where taken with my phone, so unfortunately the quality’s not so good.
