The Violent Sky

A violent lightening storm in Virginia Beach. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"The more violent the storm the sooner it is over." ~ Seneca
The thunder,
Wing'd with red lightning and impetuous rage,
Perhaps hath spent his shafts, and ceases now
To bellow through the vast and boundless deep.
~ John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 174)
My best lightening picture to date; this was a remarkable light and sound show, the prelude to torrents of rain and moderate wind. Perhaps someday with a better camera I may capture better evidence of nature's at times violent power.

Submission for Photo Tuesday topic "violent". (end of post)
