Photo #1007 – 08.18.11
Thunderbolt of Lightning
This may not be the most exciting photo ever, but it is one of the few photos I have taken that captured a bolt of lightning striking the ground during a thunderstorm. Tonight, I witnessed some of the most constant lightning I’ve seen in a while, including a number of enormous (and blinding) ground-to-cloud and cloud-to-cloud strikes. This photo was taken from my apartment during graduate school at a front bay window that had excellent views of the sky during storms, and I took a lot of photos this particular night and only managed to capture one lightning bolt…all in all, though, it was still a fun night!
