I was so surprised form this shot. Handheld, just taking shots of the clouds with my son. He is a weather nut and was telling me what type of cloud this was.

Anyway, I actually caught this bolt! I changed it to grey scale, contrast & lighting evenly changed over the whole thing and this is what I got! I love it! I hope that you all do too.

Very pretty, and works well in B&W. I love thunderbolts, and there are interesting patterns in the sky too...

nice crisp image and love the smooth grey tones in the sky but it would be nice to see something of more interest in the foreground other than just trees. 6

Nice capture but it's a shame the foreground didn't have a little more to it.
