This photograph is one of a series I took in one evening when I was experimenting with lighting and exposure. The clouds were moving fast and the light changed from bright to dim several times in the few mintues I took the photographs. To my immediate right, there was very active lightning and thunder, not to mention the mosquitos were out in full force. Sometimes it's a little unnerving to be out in the lightning, as it seems to strike a little too close for comfort once in a while. It's such a powerful part of nature that I can't help but be fascinated by it, but at a distance.
