One of the coolest pictures I have ever taken.
Used my brother's wide angle lens. Taken during a wicked great thunderstorm just now, 5 second shutter.

I live for lightning images, no matter if its high noon or midnite, I'm there, risking my life. rateings alone should be alittle higher for lightning images just because of the risk taken. #1456862

Haha you're right Tony! I was running all over my house trying to get a good view before I decided to just sit out on the front step! #1456874
