It's situations like these where I wish I had a high-speed video camera. If you haven't seen it, just go to youtube and type in "high speed lightning". Here's what really goes on when you see a single strike hit the ground: [link] Anyway! Can't remember which came first in this shot, that little CG or the crazy cloud-to-cloud crawling stuff. Took this photo up near my high school during a thunderstorm one evening. The incredible lightning plus absence of rain made for a great photo shoot. Shortly after this, though, the rain began and I had to call it quits until it let up for a bit. More shots to come!
