|Sunset before the storm|
I know, I know. A weird topic, right? But lately the storms here in Alabama have been both beautiful and destructive.
Yesterday I was on my way home from running errands and got caught in a storm. Several hundred yards in front of me a lightning bolt struck a telephone pole. A ball of light formed and then there were fireworks. It was amazing and frightening.
I looked up lightning at Wikipedia. It says that lightning can travel at speeds of 140,000 mph (220,000 km/h) and can be as hot as 54,000 degrees F (30,000 degrees C).
These pictures of cloud to cloud lightning were taken from the safety of my back patio last night. I’m getting better at my photography. 🙂

Wow! The energy in lightning is amazing! You did a great job with those pictures.
Wow! Amazing shots! Awesome!
Gorgeous shots! I love it. Sometimes we see bright ‘fireworks’ like that, out in my end of the country. Great topic for this week! ^_^
Those are beautiful pictures! I’m no photographer, but I understand catching lightning that way is pretty hard! Nice work!
Okay, first I’m thoroughly impressed with your photos! Love to take storm pics.
Second, I’m just flat-out jealous! I live in a very dry, very brown North Texas. Nuf said.
