Lone Lightning Strike
Summertime in Florida is known for dramatic, powerful afternoon thunderstorms. Florida is referred as the "lightning state." On one of my family's trip to Sanibel Island, on Florida's west coast, we left the beach in a hurry due to inclement weather. Once the family was safely inside the apartment, I ventured back out with my camera and tripod and clicked off this shot. Ten seconds later another lightning bolt stuck, this time about 100 yards from me. Mere seconds later I heard my wife yell for me to get my butt inside. Of course, I did.
