This small bold didn't quite reach the ground, but I think that changes the mood of this lightning photograph compared to many of my other shots that do have a strong, bright bolt. The rain is lit more by a bolt out of frame that did reach the ground than the one seen here. The monsoon season here should be stating up within a month's time: I'm anxious for more storms to photograph!
