Summer storms moved in during the late evening hours on August 7th bringing a beautiful display of lightning. I captured a few in the distance then moved closer to see if I could land some good strikes and I think I caught a few good ones. The storm moved super slow, I think it may have been moving a good 5 mph if that. It didn't have a lot of rain with it so it made for great conditions to capture a few shots.
This shot is of three separate bolts, but two of them were one right after the other in the matter of milliseconds and the image basically looks like one mega bolt came down. If you look close at the ground you can see the separation which isn't much. The cloud structure was insane.
In this shot a single bolt came down in the sweeping rain and it was a sight to see. Other than being a bit on the warm side the show was spectacular. Quite a nice surprise in the depths of summer.
