Lightning is an amazing force of nature and one that can sometimes be elusive to photograph. Being in a lightning storm and hearing the thunder pound above your head is an experience like no other. Please post any of your pictures of lightning in this album. I look forward to seeing what others have seen.

Great idea. Wish I could contribute, but I'm always running away from lightning. :o)

Yeah, I agree, it can be a bit creepy when you see the lightning and within a second or two you can hear deafening/crackling thunder. Enough for the goosebumps to come out. Thanks for the votes.

I have one on here, but I can't attach it to your album (some SP bug, I guess). Maybe you can? http://www.summitpost.org/image/210213/151844/thunderstorm-over-northern-yosemite.html

One of the best albums on SP, IMHO! Well, maybe it's just because I love lightnings... :)

Had a great storm 6th August 2008 and my first attempt at photographing lightning properly with my new camera.
This as a great place to put pictures of the power from the sky...!
