Look closely and there are a number of interesting features. On the left what looks to be the remnant of possibly a streamer? And to the right of the strike can someone give me some thoughts on the plasma like apparitions that appear. One comes right off the road almost like it was hit there just thousandths of a sec before I caught this. Definitely very cool. I caught this just a few weeks back not too far from Waco. So let me know what you guys think.

Only about 25,000 photos to edit and organize, lol. Anyway found this from 3 storms I caught moving through one sunset time lapse over Tampa Bay, Florida 6-30-14.

So within this bolt there are at least 8-10 plasma channels during this strike. It could be due to the strength of the storm or the pure choice of the lightning, either way I love hunting lightning!

Our favourite locations are NE Colorado and the high plains in general. We followed this storm (west of Sterling, north of Brush, CO) which went severe in the evening, produced a rotating wallcloud for about half an hour. It quickly generated this funnel which lasted about 5 minutes. This is high plains magic!! 1st May 2015

Very quick edit from yesterday, just north of Black Forest, CO. I believe a small funnel was spotted but no confirmed touchdowns. Had fun playing in little marble-sized hail before going to work! Also may or may not have sliced my arm on the barbed wire fence to get this shot... 5/1/15 - Black Forest, CO
