..back home for a few days..

Back home to work a couple shifts and then its back on the road again. While at my hotel a severe thunderstorm rolled in. Me, of course, just had to hang out on the balcony and try and catch lightning pics. This resulted in my almost getting struck as one hit about 2oo yards away..Close enough I could feel the static in my hair..no time to react and Boom! Sounded like a mortar round going off..The things I do for lightning shots...

This one hit about a quarter mile away...

But of course you would be hanging over a railing in a lightning storm... I wouldn't expect anything different from you! It's what I would do as well but my pictures would never turn out as good. LOL. Brilliant photo shot!!
