This display of nature's power is certainly a case of the Stormberg district in the Eastern Cape Highlands living up to it's name.
I captured this about 10 minutes after sunset as the last color was fading from the skies. I was exploring an area to the North of the storm about 2 hours earlier and I spent more than an hour driving through it's centre on rural farm roads as the lightning struck all around. Up until that point it was the most powerful storm I had ever experienced. Once I got out of it I drove to a high point and captured the last major strikes as it lost power.
