Hey Van, this is actually called ribbon lightning. Nice separation.

This is a great capture, but does not convey the idea of Speed to me. There is some noise in the background as well.

A tripod could have been useful to prevent shake! Good capture apart from that. [5]

wow. are those two strikes, or camera movement. they're so identical, but they have to be separate bolts, right?
