first one is just "independance day the movie"s like!!!!

A great set of images. I got some great keepers from my first foray into lightning photography (flickr set at http://www.flickr.com/photos/paul-kelly/sets/72157608487972367/ ) and would LOVE to do far more but unfortunately we don't get many such storms in the UK :(

Pick your favorite? Pick your favorite??? eeemm .. the last 15 :-)... these are all gems in their own little way. Some just for the artsy way (snail: wow); Others have impressive (did I say impressive) cloud formations in it... I love cloud formations if they're not too much photoshop'd and still carry the "weight".

great set!!
