    It went from sunny to this within minutes. It was one of the fastest moving storms I have ever seen.

    WOW is right, fantastic images!!
  4. Thanks for sharing! I love the first one. Took me back. I was born in Lorain and grew up in Sheffield Lake and Avon Lake and spent a lot of time on Lake Erie.
  5. pretty impressive work! the first one is just fantastic
  6. The second shot is foreboding, but loses a lot of impact juxtaposed with that first one. Simply awesome.
  7. Thats insane. Talk about luck! thanks for sharing
  8. In-freakn-credible, just an awesome lighting pic!

    that first one is really nice!
  10. fantastic, jim
  11. I'd say right place at the right time. Great shots Jim. The first one is simply awesome. The second one is ominous; so dark and moody I feel like I'm cornered waiting for something bad to happen. Well done.

    God Bless,
  12. Wow!

    You mean to say that the lightning bolt was a chance capture? You could not have done better if you tried.
  13. First one shot at 1/80? Wow! You gotta be good to be lucky as well.
