Sometimes it pays to be lucky. Granted, though I did not get the whole lightning strike in this shot, I still think it might be my favorite lightning shot I have taken of all time. This is straight out of the camera, no cropping, no light adjustments, nothing. If I had a wide angle lens, this would have been spectacular. Maineville, Ohio 6-15-08 Best viewed large.
Note: For those who are wondering, A) This is not fake. I would not know how to make something like this if my life depended on it. B) The white spots are not stars, but rain drops. This shot is real and straight out of the camera as I said above.
