    Taken this evening from the front yard, literally minutes before the in-cloud lightning started. NEX 5N/kit lens.

    Quite serene and a bit surreal.

    Well, see, it's like this- Bimjo = chicken. FLASH! - 2 second delay - BOOM! Little too close for me to be standing in the rain with a camera on a metal tripod. Though lightning is one of the things that I have yet to manage. Happens so seldom around here and it's either miles & miles away or right on top of me like last night. Someday… ;)

    Very much so considering what came 15 minutes later. :)

    #2 for me as well, though I wish the house and telephone pole weren't in the frame

    Some of the most surreal colors are in the sky just minutes from an evening storm. I too like the 2nd one best.

    You want him to get inside a storm cloud, he'd need to drink red bull to do that.!

    I may go back and clone them out, haven't decided yet.

    Yeah that's true. For some reason the third one seems a bit OOF. Had it been in focus it might be the keeper of the bunch. Maybe I'll play with it some more.

    I did. ;)

    Take more than one I think. :cool:

    Thanks for looking guys. :)

    The second one almost looks like a fresco in the Vatican
