A truly magnificent summer lightning storm exploded over Nimbin Rocks, sacred grounds of the Bundjalung tribe of indigenous Australians. The noise was overwhelming...

The full version is very large, but I like the details.

This is my first and definitely not last attempt at lightning photography.

:heart: Nimbin, Australia :heart:

Yeah, I think this one was 13 seconds at ISO200, but it depends a lot on how bright/frequent the lightning flashes are.
