Looks like a black and white print of a sunrise but it’s not.
This photo was taken at 10.38pm on the 24th September 2011 when yet another storm was unfolding around us. The sheet lightning was so impressive I wanted to have a record of it and out of about 3 dozen shots, before the rain began again, I 'lucked out' with this one. I had to close my eyes to regain my night vision after taking this.
This is happening quite a lot lately and though I don't mind the rain some of the natural electrical activity that comes with it can be frightening.
