Lightning Strike

I submitted a slightly lighter version of this shot to the Capture Cincinnati book, which comes out today.  I'm not sure if any of my photos are included, but this is one of my favorites I've ever taken.

I was on my porch trying to catch cloud-to-cloud lightning very late at night when this one lit up the sky and scared the hell out of me.  I scurried back inside with the massive steel tripod with which I had been tempting fate.  It's a single 1-second exposure, a very lucky catch.
