Sky Watch - Lightning

There was a storm approaching as I was on the way home Wednesday afternoon. I pulled off the main road to get some shots of the approaching dark clouds. Lightning appeared with several rapid streaks in succession. I watched through the view finder and hit the shutter when I saw a streak. The camera captured these two streaks.

Great capture on the lightning, Lew. I have tried several times unsuccessfully but may get another chance tonight and tomorrow. Have a great weekend.

I'm really impressed with these shots, Lew. I've never even considered trying to photograph lightening - too busy running the other way :)
