This is one of the best lightning shots I've ever seen on WU! A 10 fave from me and congrats on your World View and AC!

BTW: I also like aviation photos and yours are great too!

Tumultuous is a wonderful word that has become somewhat obscure (too bad). It certainly helps describe your photo, which fairly reeks of the smell of sulphur burning, there's such ferocity and intensity that's not-to-be-denied. This must have burned its way into your memory, and the fact that you held steady in the face of such power of nature, makes me think you have nerves of steel! Please accept my thanks for bringing your fellow WunderPhotogs this gem to admire and wonder at! Julie in west-central Ohio.

Possibly the best lightning photo I've ever seen! I live up in the foothills and could hear the rumbles to the southeast of me and it sounded like the voice of god it was so tumultuous. I'm glad to see this intensity captured in a visible medium.

Hi all. Thanks for the words! To get this picture, I used bulb exposures of about 4 minutes each. There are things I don't like about it though... I still want to get that GREAT lightning shot!
