My First Lightning! by m9f9l

My First Lightning!

I am so psyched. I JUST took this in front of my house. Yeah, no cool landscape or anything, but I'm just thrilled to have gotten some lightning! And a really cool blast of it at that.
I am jealous! I want to get some lightning! and I like how the power pole and lines are there. Like Dr. Frankenstein is harnessing that to power up his monster. Fav fav fav!
