I finally got a picture of Lightning!!!!!

We had an unbelievable thunderstorm here last night. We usually get a few zaps of lightning but last night it lasted for about 3 hours. I decided to try and get a picture of lightning, I have been trying to get a shot since I got my first camera as a kid. After 260 pictures(I got the lightning around 130 shots but was trying to get another one!)and about the same amount of mosquito bites! Luckily now I have my DSL. So here it is!!!!!!



Here it is cropped for a better look!

Here are some other pictures taken last night.


This shot was taken a few hours before the storm.

Nice. We got the storm as well, and it was amazing! We were at a friends for the fireworks. The lightning started about an hour and a half before and last through the fireworks display. Wish I had a better camera. Or had remembered to bring mine from the car.
