    At about 7.30-8.00pm the darkest clouds ever moved in over Toronto

    Then within minutes the best light show I have ever seen kicked in. It was still going on when I went to bed at 11.30.

    The power of Mother Nature is awesome.

    Found it hard work getting photos but these are the better ones.

    ^^^ Good work! It was quite the show, wasn't it?? Lots of sheet lightning, and bolts that went sideways as often as they went from sky-to-ground. And those dark clouds at the beginning...so low and SO dark! I love watching storms like that

    (And speaking of shows, I hear Nickelback had to cancel their concert because of the lightning storm :( )

    Beautiful photos. I can never time it quite right to get the lightening. Also wish we had more storms here in the UK!

    Beautiful. I always have a soft spot for lightning storms (I have a collection of my own). Those are some VERY nice pictures. :D

    Your first two of lightning are amazing. The CN Tower getting hit is really cool too. :D

    Awesome shots. The dark clouds are great and I really like that last one where you caught two strikes at the same time.

    What settings were you using on those pics? I would love to see the Exif data as I try to take those shots myself. How long were you leaving the shutter open? Did you use the bulb?

    Thanks.
