The Results of a Sleepless Night
I had trouble sleeping last night,
so when I heard the storm roll in,
I got up and got my camera ready.
you don't do that?

Lightning streaks across the sky.
I took 68 pictures and ended up with this one good picture.
I had my camera set up on a tripod inside the house
and the camera setting was on night landscape.
lightning doesn't warn when it will strike or where,
so all one can do is take multiple pictures and hope for the best.
I adjusted the photo for brightness and contrast
so that the lightning strike would be highlighted.
