    With all of these storms around, I decided to take advantage, and do a little chasing. I took a load of pics, and did get a lot of strikes, but I believe these were the better of the bunch. Any C&C welcome. I downsized them for upload-ability. They look a bit better at full size.
    #1 is a bit on the grainy side...I was shooting at a higher ISO earlier, and didn't remember to turn it back down before I left...

    Cool shots! I can't decide which one I like the most. I love how the strikes go off very spindly like a scratch in the sky on the second one. And I can't believe how many actually touched ground in the third! And the first one is very dramatic. I like em.

    The second one has the best composition. The third one has the best lightning. But, I'm gonna have to go with the second one as my favorite.

    Pretty amazing and terrifying at the same time. I watched a BBC documentry once, WILD WEATHER and they show that lightning actually shoots from the ground up and not the other way round.... pretty mad!

    Nice, #3 is my favorite. Looks like War of the Worlds or something!
