We've had a steady flow of storms coming through southern Louisiana this morning. This is the closest lightning strike I've ever had and captured.

This probably the best picture I have taken outside of my real estate work. I know it sucks compared to others, but for an IT guy, this is great for me. This was a single uncropped shot from my old Nikon D300S.

Insane precipitation shaft in the first storm of the season (28th April 2016) as seen from my house in Krotoszyn, Poland! Probably the most amazing storm structure I've even seen, too bad I wasn't able to chase this beauty
