This was taken last night just south of North Platte, NE. When it was all said and done most of town was without power and numerous trees were thrown about town with power lines down as well. Such beauty and power all in one setting.

Two nights ago when the meteor shower was in full force outside of Coon Rapids Iowa. What a cool view of the milky way I got along with four meteorites that flew through this 25 second exposure.

Sometimes it takes a little bit of luck with lightning. Taken on 8/7/15 in the Florida Panhandle. The bolt flashes just as I was snapping a shot of the whales mouth.
