10mm Lightning

This bolt struck the house behind the trees (which are on the edge of my yard)

 

The deafening crack was instantaneous!

 

This is the first time I've ever tried to capture lightning with a wide angle lens. keeping the rain off of the lens seems to be the problem as the rain-shield shows up in the photo when the lightning is overhead.
