All I can say is "Wow!!!!" I am absolutely terrified of lightning but this is spectacular.

Thanks Spainboy! How amazing are those photos! I love lightening and really miss the electric storms we used to get over the Jura in France in the summer (viewed from afar, of course!) Hope this one didn't cause too much damage though, it looks pretty powerful.

See ya! :D

Some great phototgraphs there. I too love lightning. It is notoriously difficult to photograph also (particularly with a digital), so they are very impressive shots.

We have some very impressive storms here during the summer months. Gets me some good work repairing frazzled computers :lol:

Last week one of our neighbours took a direct hit. It removed the stucco from the outside of the house, blew off the plaster in one room and set fire to their daughter's bed. Luckily, she was not there at the time. I distinctly remember hearing that strike - I'm sure they do too!

Don't forget, there's much going on at the main site:

Some excellent shots. For sheer impact, the channel ferry strike gets my vote, but there are a couple of very good 'lightning landscapes', too. A lot of the pics are overexposed, diminishing the impact. Anyone got any guidelines for photographing lightning?

Wow! Spectacular!

We get some pretty amazing storms in Thailand too. The monument at the bottom of our garden has been hit several times.
