Outback Lightning

Taken in a remote mining camp around Mt Isa, QLD, Australia. I was visiting for the week for work and had the most amazing lighting storm on the first night of my visit. Apparently the metals in the earth attract the lighting and the pole in the foreground is a lightning pole to protect the surrounding area.
