Day207: We interrupt this series on school supplies....

I was planning on a series of photos of school supplies this week, but the weather changed that for me this evening. We had scattered thunderstorms and a tornado warning. When the warning came on TV, the weather person also mentioned how much lightning there was with the storms. It wasn't raining at my house yet, but the thunder was rolling and there was a lot of lightning - most of it "soft, scattered" lightning in the clouds...reminded me of light from a softbox at times. :) The best view of the sky is from my driveway because of all the surrounding trees. There was lots of thunder and lightning, but only a little rain. I ended up taking 53 shots trying to get a good one of the lightning. Here's the two best ones. The camera was on the tripod, set at f16, ISO 200, bulb setting. I got a lot of shots of dark sky, but I'm pretty pleased with the two below.
