      I really was. I know the people in town must think I’m crazy, though, wandering around with my camera in a thunderstorm… 🙂

      Actually, this is an example of my “quantity leads to quality” theory. I set up my camera to just keep shooting and I shot photo after photo — maybe 200 in all — in hopes of capturing a lightning flash. (Gotta love digital!) I was so happy when I got home and reviewed the photos and found this one. 🙂

      Thanks, Lisa. I know what you mean – it looked like a brutal storm. No fun to be in, I’m sure.

    Abaco has the best summer lightening storms. Never saw such displays as we saw during our visit to GTC last July. Awesome.

      It’s true, Ann. Unfortunately, we’re still a bit early in the year for the really spectacular ones… so far we’ve had just rain and thunder. Not much lightning yet…
