We have had a couple of wicked out of season thunderstorms and I decided to capture them on camera. It actually started sleeting 30 minutes after I took this shot...

Oooh ... not many pictures of cloud-to-cloud lightning around -- great capture. I'm sure your local NOAA gallery would be happy to see this.

Something about this photograph is a little off. It seems flat to me. I can see horizontal lines spaced evenly across the picture and don't know why. A bit dark and little contrast. Sorry but to me it just don't seem as vivid as most lightning photographs, maybe its the color or post processing. Wish you the best in the challenge.

crazy.. I wish we got thunderstorms like that here. Ours consist of one lightning strike every 30 minutes.. and we get 2 or 3 of those a year. *le sigh*.

cooperative sky! i wish the bolts (especially those on the right) were a bit sharper. might have been worth experimenting with cropping/dodging a little bit more to bring out the details there.

Your lovely photograph has the distinction of receiving my 1000th comment :-)

Very dramatic! Love the hues in the clouds. The silhouette of the large thundercloud is quite ominous and awesome. This surely deserves to be among the very highest ranked in this challenge, which I feel is one of the more talent loaded ones of late. Well done and a very deserved 10 from me.
