Mike, you have an impressive line-up of weather related photos but this one is my personal favorite! You have so many elements going on yet they are all well-balanced and formed into a great composition! The lightening's proximity to the forward end of the storm and the sunlight gap revealing the sunset colors--I even caught a glimpse of the ground texture at the bottom in a wide arc. Absolutely amazing daytime double lightening strike photo. A well-deserved AC and World View award winner!
