Lucky Lightning Shot

Taken at about 9:15 PM, I was actually making my first attempt at shooting traffic trails while waiting for the fireworks to start at 9:30 PM. But I got lucky, and I got a nice bolt of lightning while I was at it. Tripod mounted, ISO 100, F 8.0, 16 sec shutter. If you look at the larger sizes, you'll notice little dots scattered throughout the image - that's the light rainfall happening while I was shooting.
