This has been published in 'Digital Photographer Magazine' Ukranian edition, as part of an article talking about lightning!!

 

This was taken in Rapid City, South Dakota. I have been photographing, or trying to photograph, lightning for many years now. I have got some beautiful shots, but I never had felt like I got THE shot. Well, I feel like I finally got THE shot with this one, now I have to try and one up myself. Actually, I just got lucky here, I have seen a lot of beautiful lightning, but my camera was pointing the wrong way, the evening I shot this their was so much lightning, it didn't matter where I pointed the camera, I was going to get something.
