Deep night thunderstorm, Dallas area.
During summer 2016, I savored a few lovely thunderstorms and captured truly spectacular lightning bolts in my heart, minds eye and on camera.
Every time I see lightning, the awe-struck, gleeful little child inside of me rejoices with great gusto.
All these were captured after the amazing July 4th and 5th captures listed in earlier lightning posts.
This spectacular lightning bolt, taken in the morning before work is one of my favorites of the year.
Same lightning show as prior photo, with plenty of lovely thunder and pounding rains to boot.
This bolt tore with spectacular finesse yet majesty through a thunderhead towering over our southern horizon.
Another one of my favorites, captured immediately after my work day ended. Tremendous claps of thunder replied.
Lightning ripples across our southeastern sky on this gentle warm evening.
This anvil to ground lightning beneath overshooting thunderhead top brought me great joy, even though the storm itself began dissipating as it reached our location.
