Abduction of Alliance by FramedByNature Abduction of Alliance by FramedByNature

A high-precipitation supercell spits out powerful bolts of lightning as it churns just east of Alliance, Nebraska. Not super pleased with the composition here (hate to have a bolt get cut off), but easily one of my favorite frames of the season. This spring and summer were abnormally slow for storms. Luckily, my coworker Cody and I were able to leave work early and make it to central Nebraska in time for this spectacle. We also caught a grungy tornado earlier in the afternoon, but this photogenic mesocyclone was far and away my favorite scene of the day.

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Simply beautiful. Nature never ceases to amaze me. How would one go about taking photos of lightning, if you don't mind me asking? Most of the time lightning happens in the blink of an eye. I'd imagine luck would play a part? Or does lightning-quick reflexes help? Excuse the pun. :)

I like the composition, it feels balanced with the left of the cell cut just enough too. 👍

As a storm spotter for Douglas County, KS this is what we're trained to keep an eye on whenever we get called out.  I'd have to have a camera as well to catch sights like these when I call them in.  And this is looking towards the back side, right?
