What everyone else said, and also, it's pretty special that the lightning originates in the center of the arc. It's definitely not an everyday snapshot.

Nice capture of the lightening and the rainbow occupying the sky. Because of the dark and reddish hue of the sky the green and blue bands of the rainbow are very subdued; almost not there. However the color of the sky is very sinister; threatening - if the greek gods were real than I would say that Zeus is very upset with Iris.
