"Four Strikes and You're..."
This was an extremely serendipitous moment in Seattle from a very impromptu urban landscape photo shoot. I just didn't feel like going home this particular evening and the weather conditions triggered my photographic instincts to take a detour. This scene was photographed during a long exposure of 30 seconds. Needless to say, when I saw what occurred along the horizon, I'm certain that I was in a state of disbelief for several seconds thereafter, thinking "Did that really just happen while my shutter was open???"
I have captured a lightning bolt once before on camera (many years ago in Miami), but never four lightning bolts in one image.
