Gavin, an impressive storm scene. The bolt of lightening over the mountain is positioned perfectly for the composition. Well done.

Cool shot. It's almost impossible timing this right with such a fast shutter speed.

I had the camera set on continuous shoot and just tried over and over again until I got lucky. The lightning was striking fairly consistently around this particular spot.
