    Next time, if you want to get closer shots of lightning, stand next to a really tall tree

    ...just joking, nice first captures.

    Pretty good for first attempt... :thumbup:

    You've definitely got the basic concept down. To make your shots more interesting, try getting something other than trees in your forground.... farms, bridges, city/town skylines, etc. I have a lot of pre-scouted locations marked in my GPS, so when a storm rolls through, I try to choose one of those in it's path.
