Photo Of The Day By Jeff Sullivan

Today’s Photo of the Day is “First Strike” by Jeff Sullivan. Location: Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, Nevada.
“I was out to pursue photos of the Lyrid Meteor Shower, but I was treated to something even better: an active thunderstorm forming from sunset into the night!” says Sullivan. “I set up camp on the top of a mountain to capture clouds changing color at sunset, but I ended up capturing much more. The lightning continued for over an hour into the night, so I kept my cameras going while cooking dinner on a campfire nearby. This storm started as some nice clouds at sunset with a little rain coming down, but the clouds consolidated over time to become a more energetic cell with frequent lightning. I kept shooting it well into the night and ended up with a time-lapse sequence of a few thousand shots. The lightning is striking Bald Mountain in the Wovoka Wilderness Study Area, as seen from the Bodie Hills across the Rosaschi Ranch on the East Walker River.”
