We were at Big Bend to photograph the Milky Way. There were thunderstorms with lots of lightning. We started to photograph and were having a great time until... lightning stuck about 50 yards from us. That ended the photographing and we were inside our cars in a blink. Will never do that again.

Well done Harriet, and I don't blame you as I sail a 34' sailboat and do not want to be out in a lighning storm... A FAV #11835898

Thank you, Randall. I hesitate to even post this because the risk is definitely too much to ever try this. #11835912
