This is one of those shots I knew I wanted to get from the start of this photo project.  A cool lightning photo.  Friday night I was sitting at home, coincidentally watching Next Friday when I started hearing thunder rumbling off in the distance.  I checked the radar and there was a small storm cell headed our way, so I grabbed my camera and headed out.  I tried getting some lightning shots last week, but lightning is actually harder to shoot than I originally thought it would be, and I failed.  This week was much better shooting though, with a lot more visible bolts in the sky.  It took me a while but I ended up snagging a couple cool lightning shots.  I ended up going with this one because of the multiple bolts you can see flashing across the sky.  This is definitely one of my favorite shots so far this year!
