I thought it would be interesting to do some graphics experiments with the stills from last Tuesday in Lexington. The following image is a Photoshop composite merging all eight 35mm frames. Despite the merge resulting in a loss in luminosity/contrast of the individual lightning channels, this gives an idea of what the scene might have looked like if I had been able to do a single 20-minute exposure of all eight strikes together.

I also assembled Flash animations of these eight stills - here is the slow version and the fast version.
