    Even though the lightening strike was about 2 miles away, the BOOM still scared the crap out of me!!! :lol3

    This is quite an impressive picture. Most lightning shot are done by night to allow long exposure.

    Thanks so much! I have quite a few night shots of lightening, and your right, this was a lucky shot! I do not have the lightening strike sensors that automatically trigger an exposure, so it was all chance hoping for a lightening strike during a 3.2 second exposures @f20! What I remember most though was that BOOM, even though I expected it, it was still enough to get the heart racing!:D

    Er, yeah! Fixed again. I had a bit of trouble creating new folders in Photobucket.
    Should be consistent now.

    Great shot.
    It looks like the rainbow is running along the ground instead of in the air. Is that just due to the angle?

    Thanks! The bike was on an overlook at a high elevation - the rainbow had arched over the valley below.

    Thank you :D
