Lightning photography is what I love! This photo was taken in midst of a severe thunderstorm in Winchester, Wisconsin USA on April 10th, 2011. As I was taking this photo, this storm produced a brief tornado about 10 miles to my west. If it wasn’t night time, I probably would have gone after the tornado, but instead, I moved out of it’s path and relocated to a safer spot to continue photographing the brilliant lightning display.
It’s one thing to see a photo. But if you would like to see the video of the storm chase that this photo came from, just follow the link. If you watch closely, you see the lightning strike from the photo as it happens. It’s a little later in the video.
