This lightning shot was taken during the first weekend in May. I almost didn’t go out that evening to take photos, but the thunderstorm was going just south of my house. Seeing as i live across from Sinnissippi park and since the park has a nice overlook of the bayou and Rock river, i figured i better get out and take some shots, glad i did!! the storm stayed just barely south of my position so i lucked out and didnt get any rain. I managed to get about a dozen lighting photos but only a handful of them were great.
