Out Of The Blue
Caught this lightning strike one evening when I didn’t even know there was a storm rolling in. I set out to take pictures of the sunset and to experiment with long shutters speeds, but I decided to point the lens the other direction for a bit to see if one of those long shutter speeds would equate to a nice shot of the sky zapping the ground. I had a lot of failed attempts, but this one came out all right.
I did some rare work in Photoshop on this one to remove some power lines that were prominently in the picture.
