Here are a few shots from storms that skirted by on the north side of New Baden at dusk tonight.

This next one is a stack of five successive frames. Stacking lightning shots is relatively easy, unless the ambient light is changing rapidly, as it was here at twilight. For a good stack, you have to get the color of each frame to match perfectly, otherwise you get a weird 'psychedelic' look as the various colors try to blend in the final image. You can see a little of that here, as I didn't put a lot of time into pre-stack color balancing with this one.
