Thunderstorm over Bergen

Nature, flexing her muscles. We rarely see big thunderstorms like this in norway, i guess this one formed due to the unusually warm weather we´ve been having lately. The pouring rain and thunderclaps woke me up, so i grabbed my gear, and ran to a lookoutpoint near my home. Glad i did, these are my first lightningshots, and they turned out quite alright no?

 

Strobist info : At least one thousand million volts ( no really ) of electrical discharge, traveling at 220,000 km/h, with a temperature approaching 30,000 °C. Camera front, set to 1/4 ;) I suspect quite a few fish was having a really bad day at work.
