Fire in the sky

I've been getting a lot of good lightning photos lately. It's that time of year. I'm actually kind of getting known for my lightning photos. Ironic that I'm better known for something where I don't control 90% of the process. I have a lot of fun with it though. Here are some of my recent ones.

Lightning Rose

Through the Clouds

Multiple Strikes

Fire in the Sky

Long Tail

Hand of God

The Big Guy

Peace,

These are amazing shots! The last one would have me looking for fulgurites (once the storm cleared, I was already hit once!).

I've been struck a couple times too. The last one struck in flooded field about 100 yards from me. I think when it hit the electricity spread out over the surface of the puddle and the highway because all we found the next day was some charred plants.

I was telling my Mom that for the multiple strike one I was standing 3 miles away with stars over my head.

I love the fourth one down. It looks like a lightning flower in the clouds.

I call the first one a lightning flower. But #4 is a good example of cloud to cloud.

You bet. I'd do the same.
Be careful! :)

Three of the photos look like where I live and have recently experienced. I just had my A/C and furnace replaced today from a strike last week during storms that followed the lines in and fried everything. IT'S EXPENSIVE!

I've lost countless computers that way.

I'm glad there was no strike directly to my home or that a fire didn't start from the wiring. etc. It was a frightening night.

Beautiful. I'm amazed at the closeness of the last one!
