In defiance of the typical late-summer weather trend, spectacular thunderstorms developed across the state on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 18. One such cell was about to pass close to the west of me as I left work in Scott Depot. The storm cooperated in not only moving slow enough so I could catch up to it in Milton, but gave a nice show of bright crystal-clear lightning once I had the camera out and ready.

I ended up on the west side of Milton at the Forest Memorial Park cemetery along Route 60, where a clear view of the storm awaited. I had about two minutes of photogenic lightning before it got too close, and came away with two catches behind the wind-blown American flag.

Camera/Lens/Film: 35mm Pentax K1000 SLR, 28mm lens, Fujichrome Sensia II 100 slides.
Exposure: 1/125 second at F8, manual trigger
