Sometimes You Get Lucky II
Sometimes You Get Lucky II
Description: Last year I got lucky with a close lightning photo shown at http://tinyurl.com/mxex3s - This year I have gotten lucky again. This was a Positive Giant strike only a few miles away during a massive lightning storm the likes of which we hadn`t seen in years. This was one frame clipped from a Quicktime movie done by a Kodak Z650 camera. I was especially lucky because I wasn`t prepared to chase this storm, didn`t have all my equipment and had just replaced my batteries after running out.

And to think the storm that I saw in Altoona, just to the south of State College, was just getting its act together. By the time it reached Jesses it was a monster putting out a ton of lightning. Great Job! -- johnstownwildfire
That is beautiful -- BeckyMarie
Amazing strike. Nice job getting that. Even when I catch a strike on video, I can never get the definition you achieved in still frame. Great shot! -- ctecce
