**edit 2 - Added more clarity to the photo

** The original shot was awesome, and I LOVE this photo a lot~ :) This photo was taken when there was a thunderstorm outside, and this was a good shot of lightning! :o Don't you just love storms? Somehow lightning and hearing thunder makes me feel calm and relaxed, and I simply LOVE curling up with a good book, all snuggled up under the covers :heart: This reminds me of Selena Gomez's song
''Naturally'' ~ ☂☁''You are the thunder and I am the lightning, and I love the way you know who you are..and to me that's exciting''! ☺☂☂☁

I appreciate all your support/comments/faves! :love:

Oh wow, what lovely shades of violet and blue. You caught the lightning at an opportune moment, where it arcs across the sky in a violent pattern, an announcement to the rumbling thunder that is sure to follow. I always liked to watch the lightning flashes and count to see how long after the flash does the thunder follow. Though every time it did thunder I flinched DX. Never the less, this is a stunning piece and Selena Gomez's "Naturally" also sums up, in a sense (I may not make sense here), how this scene was made and captured...it just comes naturally. :)
What do you think?

Oh, my gosh, do you realize how LUCKY it is to get a picture of lightning?  I've been sitting on my porch every thunderstorm and taking video and picture, and I can't get one!  Neither can any of my friends or family, this is so rare!  Well done!  The colors are gorgeous and it's just WOW!!

Beautiful! It's very difficult to capture a lightning flash manually. I know, I've tried. I love thunderstorms, its natures way to really rock the house! LOL!

Great capture of lightning! It's hard to get that without using a time exposure. I love thunder and lighting as well. I used to really enjoy the storms in Arizona when I lived there.

Not just lightning, you seem to have imaged a Ground-to-Air lightning bolt, more rare than the cloud-to-earth ones.
On both of the sides- one above the roof and the other on the left edge, between the trees are some bolts that didn't fully connect with the storm clouds.

We get some nice displays here in the Southwest with storms in late summer.

sometimes you can also use regular shutter time too, this was just luck :p

Seems like most of the really awesome shots of lightning actually have a pretty long shutter time, which is why they're usually at night. They'll set their cameras up where they think they'll get a good strike and wait. Hunting lightning takes patience. :D
