For YEARS I’ve been trying to get a picture of a bolt of lightning. The closest I ever came was a flash behind a bush. In the past I’ve shot hundreds of pictures of stormy skies (thank the gods for digital, film would have busted me) and only gotten pictures of stormy skies…

Monday the 1st, around 11:00 PM there was a monster storm rolling in from West to East so I dragged the camera and tripod outside to give it a shot. WOO! Success! Not great but finally, after all these years! Now I just want to get a better shot!

Sorry the linked images are a bit smaller than usual. The long exposure and variable lighting made for lower quality images. Smaller looked better (for a change {G}).
