friday night light...ning

Went to the local high school football game (North Lamar Panthers). We left at halftime due to an approaching lightning storm. Once outside the stadium, I decided to try to get some lightning shots before we left. I caught a couple of good shots before the kids insisted it was time to go. Handheld, Tamron 17-50 f/2.8.
