Dynamic Sunset Strike by FramedByNature Dynamic Sunset Strike by FramedByNature
And now introducing, the most dynamic lightning strike I have ever taken! You've gotta admit, the colors in this one are fantastic. It's like an entire rainbow of color, all originating from the lightning. The texture of the clouds also blows me away. This shot was taken just after a sheer cloud had passed over, so the textures were sweet! And to finish it off, we've got the silhouetted horizon ;)

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Phenomenal!!!!!!!!!!

Have you ever seen a multi-colored lightning storm? About 5 years back, in Austin, TX my husband and I witnessed a storm where the lightning was causing the clouds to glow all different colors....pink, red, orange, blue, purple. It was crazy!!!!!!! It felt like "Close-Encounters of the Third Kind"!!!!!! I don't know what or how it did that, but it was beautiful!

Thank you! You have to be pretty focused in order to be able to react fast enough. I just stare blankly at the sky and the instant I see a flash, I press the shutter. Usually you can catch one of the return strikes (the ones that appear after the initial strike, making it appear to flash on and off).
