This picture was taken from my window last Friday. I set my camera for a long exposure in order to get several lightning strikes in one shot. I kept missing summer lightning storms so I set up a tripod in front of my window, over a month ago, in case another storm came through.I wanted to be ready. Most times rain would be between me and the lightning strikes making any long exposures look blurry. I waited for a storm that was clear between myself and the lightning to get a clearer shot. I'm sorry to say this is the canyon view of buildings I have from my window. On a sad note, unknown to me at the time, I lost a good friend and a good man in this storm after he was struck by lightning. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife.
