When the weather goes wild, my instinct is to grab a camera.

On Friday night, I resisted the urge for awhile and avoided looking outside.

But when I saw the flashes lighting up over the city, I couldn’t help it.

I brought my camera and tripod up to the roof, continuous-shot at the ready.

I squealed and grinned in delight every time a massive strike lit up the sky.

I was super excited when I captured some of them. (Most of the shots were of dark sky, of course.)

I was even more thrilled to see these off the camera–wow!
