Lucky Strike

Caught this one while doing exposure tests during a thunderstorm last night It was still fairly light out, so I couldn't use real long time exposures like I normally do for lightning shots. This is just a 2 second exposure, fortunately catching this neat lightning bolt. It was raining pretty heavy, and the water was running off the edge of the porch, and the flash of lightning stopped the action, showing the drops;-) This was at late sunset, giving a beautiful reddish tint to the sky.
