Lightning over Virginia Beach Yes, the picture is right side up. The lightning seems to be going from ground to cloud, but more likely just cloud to cloud. (Click picture for larger image)
You can listen to thunder after lightning and tell how close you came to getting hit. If you don't hear it, you got hit, so never mind. ~ UnknownWe finally got a break in the heat wave, at least for a few hours. As the front went through we had quite a pyrotechnic display with mostly cloud to cloud lightning and almost continual thunder. At first I thought it was the ever present and comforting sound of jets practicing takeoffs and landings at Oceana Naval Air Station. Rain, however was minimal. I didn't have a tripod, just balanced my camera on Nyssa's car. It took one hundred pictures to accidentally capture this.
