Lightning, Zeus Unleashed by Christian1776 Lightning, Zeus Unleashed by Christian1776
**update**
Thanks all for the comments. :) I only wish the photo was able to express the sheer magnitude of these lightning strikes. This pic was taken more than 20 miles away from the storm...I see lightning here over 90 days a year, but this storm had the largest strikes i've ever seen--starting from several miles up in the atmosphere.

A beautiful storm near lake okeechobee, Florida

I got several photos of this storm and i will post one or two more soon to show the storm's progress

and here is a pic taken about 2 min after this one, it was a hard choice which one to feature first

My favorite part of this photo is how it actually looks like it's coming from somewhere in the clouds...likes it's being thrown. Actually, it looks more like it was casually tossed from a comfortable chair, but you know what I mean.

ya, picture can't really capture the punch of the sound from these lightning. If only there is a way to express it in the shot. :)
