I opted to shoot last night's storms from home, as I didn't think they would last long enough for me to get closer. This lightning is about 70 miles to my north, shot with the 50mm lens at 800 ISO. These aren't much, but they bring the lightning-photos-every-month streak to 17.

An early-morning complex of weak storms is rolling through the area now, which will likely eliminate our chances of seeing anything else expedition-worthy today. Another local lightning expedition is possible here tomorrow, then it's off to the Plains for Saturday. var rows="4"; // Sets "Comments" field height var passwd_on="no"; // Disables "Password" field var email_on="no"; // Disables "E-mail" field var sites_on="no"; // Disables "Website" field
