[small_button text="Follow Andy" title="Cool Button" url="https://www.facebook.com/Exist2Chase/" align="left" target="_blank"] One of many incredible close lightning strikes experienced on an intense storm chase near Oakey, Queensland, Australia on November 17th 2012. In this particular case, fate randomly chose a large tree approximately 250 yards away to our SW. What I really like about this image is how the lightning strike illuminates the surface around the object as if were daylight. I nearly spilled my drink!

Saw lots of golf ball and some tennis ball sized stones, fun weekend!

I've had the vision of this shot for a long time and finally got to capture it! It's ironic and dramatic! What do you y'all think?
