Lightning strikes less than 1/4 mile away behind the Dunbar High School football field in Dunbar, WV in June 1994 during a severe late afternoon storm. I was set up inside the car facing west.

This one was loud. It wasn't long after this strike that strong wind, rain and hail ended the photo session.

If you zoom in on the lightning, you can see the classic 'ribbon' effect caused by the strike's 12 return strokes moving sideways with the wind (below).
