A break from the Owls for today, for an image that I have been trying to get for ages, a lightning strike during an electrical storm.
Taken at 11pm on Friday 13th June over Swindon, really pleased wih the lightning, just a shame the foreground interest wasn't a little better, a block of flats isn't quite a historic landmark, but hey ho, thats for next time.

Thanks for looking.

Phil

Fantastic storm last night Phil. This came our way too. I have lived in many parts of the world and I have never seen lightning like it. My neighbours house was hit and it burnt to the ground. Very frightening.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
