Great timing and I like the taupe tones in the sky. Voted earlier.

I'm horribly tempted to quote back to the future, but I'll not exceed 10ohms. A nicely capture lightning strike- Nice branching and great color control. My lightning is always insanely colored and horrible to correct. I also very much like how nicely the body of water is illuminated. Not, perhaps a beach shot in a traditional sense, but very nice.
