    Between the city of Madison, the 60mph forward movement, and the reports of baseball sized hail, I couldnt, and really didnt want to get too close to this storm, so I photographed it from a distance. these were taken while it was over Madison. Taken between 9:35 and 9:45 PM. Looking southeast from the Black earth area.

    They are absolutely incredible. I love the 5th one. I would like to see them with a gap between each picture too because they tend to merge into one at the moment, at least on my monitor! :roll: They look great merged together but I'd like to see them separately too! I also can't quite decide whether I'd clone out the tiny light spots.

    Anyway, I love them :mrgreen:

    Amazing... I was out yesterday in that and so wanted to get pics of the lightning, but was too busy trying to find some safe place to park my car. (*grumble*)
    You really captured it extremely well!

    Great shots, as always! The boyfriend was trying to capture lightning yesterday...he got one sorta decent shot, but we also didn't have a good place to shoot from (my apartment window in the middle of town)...I'm gonna have to show him your shots. :D

    Only thing I can think of is the left cell was over the city of madison, and the other was a few miles outside of it, so the redish colors are street lights reflecting off the clouds. As the second storm moves left, it to becomes redish.
