Amazing tower lightning!

What a show!!! Witnessed a total of eleven hits to the WVAH tower today, at least 9 of those I captured close-up in HD. I bagged three of them on the XSi (plus the bead-out of a fourth discharge), zoomed in all the way with the 70-300mm lens. Lots of video to work on and post later - but more storms are firing in Ohio, so I'm out the door again in a few minutes for a nighttime lightning show. Here are a few of the tower stills - the last one is a crop of the first image, showing a set of upward-branching leaders alongside the main channel.
