As the storm came

A truly marvelous light show over Antelope Island last night! The entire day had been moody as a storm front passed through and me trapped at work. But the weather persisted as my wife and I drove to the action. Finally, as we were about to go, we made one more stop and I was rewarded with this flash of brilliance...as the storm came.

I'd crop out the left side, it's not adding anything and it would move the center of interest off the center of the image. Otherwise very nice. Where's Antelope Island?

About an hour north of Salt Lake City.

It is a fine, dramatic image, Mark. I'm inclined to agree with Dennis. Hard to frame up with lightning!

Thanks Chris! I don't ever do lightning...but it was EVERYWHERE that night...what a show.

You are quite brave to stand outside in a lightening storm! Great shot!

Uh believe me...I'm not that guy. It got close and my spider senses started to tingle..time to go.

Fantastic moment you captured Mark!! The composition is a little lacking for a print, did you happen to take an exposure for the foreground to blend so there is not so much negative space?

One shot, one kill. No time for blending
