    Whoa...Holy Lighting Batman....Fantastic! That must have been incredible too witness. One of my favourite armchair activities is watching storms and I have never seen anything like that. The first picture is good enought, but the second picture really rocks.

    Those are amazing! *Sigh* I miss lightning storms like that. I love the colours you captured in these. What settings did you use?

    Those pictures are absolutely incredible. The lightning in the first one is amazing, but I like the second one better.

    We get bad lightning storms around here sometimes, but nothing like that! What were the settings you used?
