We had a spectacular lightning storm roll through last week. I had never seen anything like it. The lightning was so intense and there was no rain, great for photographing. I grabbed my camera and starting taking some shots. I was using the the 5d mark II so I decided to do some HD video. I wanted to keep the definition of the clouds as they lit up but I think maybe I could have opened up the exposure a little. The best view was unfortunately through the power lines.
