Taken outside Guymon Oklahoma on May 31'st, this was the third and last image I have of this lightning storm striking the ground. It was an incredible experience being able to watch such a fierce previously tornadic storm such as this, without being rained or hailed on whatsoever.

…and it was indeed dumping large golfball sized hail when I shot this.
