Electrical Storm Over Prince's Inlet

A huge electrical storm went through here early in the morning. I am told it was massive stretching form New York to Newfoundland. It started with mild rumbling then followed a massive amount of fork lightning, and ended up with tons of sheet lightning. The Nova Scotia power grid was hit with over 200 strikes and finally caved in at 1:55 am. This picture was taken just before the power went out.

 

This is a 60 second exposure at F/5.0 ISO 100. I took a few shots before i got two bolts in the same image.
