[small_button text="Follow Gary" title="Cool Button" url="https://www.facebook.com/garylhenry" align="left" target="_blank"] On Thursday night, May 18, I was out shooting as a super cell passed over the TV antenna farm in Oklahoma City. I was lucky enough to capture 5 different images of ground to cloud lightning that emanated from the TV towers. One of the shots was the pic I posted yesterday showing 3 simultaneous strikes. In addition to that one, I got 4 more. I didn't realize those towers were so reactive.

[small_button text="Follow Josiah" title="Cool Button" url="https://www.facebook.com/cowboystormchaser" align="left" target="_blank"] Benton/White counties in Indiana yesterday. This graceful, elegant rope was really the first photogenic tornado I've ever seen. While I was taking pictures, a guy on his way home from work stopped next to me and said "Hey that's a tornado isn't it?!" I replied that it indeed was. He commented that he had never seen anything like that in his life before and went on to say, "It's cute!"

Here my 2nd less than successful attempt in capturing Upwards Lightning on Tuesday night, a couple days before a few others saw it on Thursday night while Chasing storms. As the Lightning addict that I've been, I continue to search for similar events as this, and better quality presentations/documents.....

I know this is only a sunset shot, so it may not get as many likes as the awesome tornados and shelfies I'm seeing. But I still love it none the less!

This was so incredibly beautiful. I wish I could include the scope of it all. It stretched all across the sky. 5/21/17
