Weren't as close as i would have liked, and I was in no shape to chase them having not had much sleep for the week leading up to that night/morning. I do like the spooky feel to this pic though.

A single event taken from my back patio late 2014. Singleton Western Australia. This was a good storm which produced some great CG strikes over an hour or so.

Decaying supercell taken on May 26, 2014 near Big Spring, TX. It's OK, because plenty of other picturesque cells are on their way!

I got a great light show for my birthday, end of August 2013. Charlton, Ma. Can anyone explain the sideways jog in the lightning or did it reach out and shake my tripod at just the right moment?
