I have to say I was very concerned by the closeness and intensity of this storm. There were strikes like these every 30 seconds so I didn't even risk getting out of the car. My car shook during this strike and the sound explosion was literally at the same time as the strike. This was taken with my Nikon D700 wedged on the dash through my front windshield with the wipers on intermittent so not to affect the image. 20mm, ISO 400, f/8 for 30 seconds.
