That is one big lightning bolt and it really lit up the sky. I like to watch it but I know it can cause a lot of damage also. Good shot.

This is one of the reasons my mother said she
would never go back to OK or KS.

Awesome capture, Mike!

About mbryan777

mbryan777

Hello. My name is Mike. I moved from a very large city in California to a small city in northeastern Oklahoma, USA. I am enjoying the slower lifestyle in Oklahoma and taking pictures of flowers, sunsets, sunrises, clouds, storms insects and hills. I have an engineering degree, but I minored in Biology so I really enjoy studying nature and how God engineered it. I've always loved photography but digital macro photography and weather photography are my favorites. Slowing down to study the small things, like flowers, has continually reminded me that God gives us many blessings that are simply for our pleasure and He is the designer of beauty.
