Thankfully I was inside. this was shot through a screen and its a good thing because even with high F/stop it would of washed it out. I have never seen something so bright and loud. This was a boring storm overall and in the space of 2 minutes these great bolts happened. Made the 2 hours on the floor worth it. Taken in Spring Arbor MI around 4am on July 30th 2012

Taken in Arizona last year. Exposure: 1/6 sec, f/22 at ISO 100. Single shot. I think the lightning kind of looks like a person waving at the rainbow.
