    last week I witnessed the craziest thunderstorm I've ever seen when waking up in the middle of the night (or rather lightning storm, as there was barely any thunder).

    The light show went on for a long time, with lightning strikes every 30 seconds to a minute. I just grabbed my camera and took a bunch of handheld 4 second exposures... :)

    I sort of favor the next to the last. Good job.

    I like the last one the best, but I also love the clouds in the third one.

    You got some really nice results! Must've been quite far out if you didn't hear much thunder?

    Yes, I guess it was too far away. After a while it did come closer though - or at least the rain did - and visibility dropped to zero...
