So, I guess I’m on a bit of a lightning kick these days. I had to make a quick run to the store tonight and I noticed lots of lightning flashes in the sky, but couldn’t really see anything. I only knew which direction it was coming from. When I got home, I told the wife I was going out for photos.

I grabbed my gear and drove up the street to the bayou that comes in from Tampa Bay. This is the same place I’ve shot rocket launches from. The open bayou gives you a great line of sight to just about everything in the sky.

The lightning wasn’t shooting out of the clouds as much as I would have liked, but what are you gonna do? I don’t control the lightning. Well, not yet...
