Thanks! I lucked into the opportunity to take the photo. Didn't see it happen but was there just after. After the lightening traveled down tree it followed a big root to an an underground PVC water pipe and exploded it. Water was shooting out of the hole but the city crew turned the water off before I could get a picture.

About UnobtrusiveTroll10


Hi folks, I live in the northwestern portion of Michigan's Lower Peninsula - near Lake Michigan - with beautiful family (and pets!). Photo opportunities abound in this beautiful area of Michigan. My current and only camera is an Olympus Tough Series TG-1. It has performed nicely and I think I get the most out of it. Someday soon, I hope to be able to purchase a nice DSLR of some type and perhaps take a photography class. History shows that I am very hard on cameras and my love of beaches makes life difficult for any camera I own. The Traverse City, Michigan area is no longer a secret so I may as well invite you up here to discover the beauty that we enjoy each and every day. You won't be disappointed - so please... don't tell everyone! Mike
