Rob, I was on a 'Monsoon workshop' in Tucson AZ where predictably there are heavy thunderstorms between the middle of July and the middle of August every year. The workshop leader/pro is an experienced storm chaser and we chased storms for three afternoons and evenings, capturing lightning in a variety of locations. Watching the movement of this thunderstorm, he positioned us in this location and we took between 20 and 30 shots of lightning strikes over 50 minutes, all within (or nearly so) this frame. This was the best and most 'photogenic' of the strikes. As well as this one turned out, I came home with only 4 keepers for the three days and nights. I'm glad you like it :-)

Jim, if this was anyone but you, I would swear it was photoshopped. It's just too perfect. Great shot. How did you do it?

The eerie silence before the storm. Let the rains fall. In BC too please. Awesome moment, when one wants to hold one's breath.
