WoW This was by far one of the most intense and amazing storms i've seen in a very very long time. If i would of been in the front of the house to start with on this night i would of got the best lightning shot ever because 20 meters over the road an old peoples home got the full force of a bolt! wow! The Crack from that bolt was just mind blowing.. 20 minutes after the strike the fire brigade turned up to check the building out and luckily No major damage was caused.

And this beauty which was just out of shot hit homebase which was about 70 meters or less away.
