Default Lightning Pic

Neighbor on "Next door" is a photographer and when we had a lightning storm come through 2 days ago (last event was 10+ yrs ago) he caught this one. Bay bridge & SF skyline. I thought it was cool enough to share here.

Beautiful shot.

I can almost hear the thunder and smell the SF street poop.

Nice shot but it is actually multiple shots combined. There is no way in hell that many strikes would happen in the same instant. If you have ever attempted to photograph lightning you would know. Iíve created similar shots. Itís easy because of how Photoshop works with light objects on dark backgrounds. Not so easy to get that many shots of lightning. That guy must have spent days getting those shots.
