A violent lightening storm in Virginia Beach. (Click picture for larger view)
"The more violent the storm the sooner it is over." ~ Seneca
The thunder,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.
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)
