Lightning Storm Over Tidal Basin #2, Washington DC

I shot this photo along with a series of others last April. I was sitting in my apartment in Foggy Bottom when I noticed that lightning was going off about every 10 seconds out of the window. I quickly got on my bike with the intent to shoot a straight shot down the National Mall with lightning all over. The storm was gone before I got there, so I figured while I was out I should get some photos of the Jefferson Memorial at night. Just as I had got there, the storm came back. I shot photos for over an hour in the area before I got the shots that I wanted. This was one of them.
