I was rather rushed to take this pic, the storm was moving fast and I had to drive into it to get a good vantage point :) There was a ton of lightning. Not only did I get these two in this one frame, there was ANOTHER bolt in the photo taken just after this.

Woooo-hoooooo!!! Thanks to all the voters for the 9th place! This is my first Top 10 and my 2nd highest score so far :)

It amazes me how folks get shots of lightning and to get a great "double take" lighning shot to boot! What are the odds?! Very well done and pleasant to look at. I love the trees in the foreground too. Back to bump you up to 9.

Amazing. I can't even capture one lightening strike, and here you got two in one shot. And a beautiful shot it is! 10
