This is the last shot I will post from the amazing storms a few nights ago. I think that this is the best from that night. I hope you like it.

Some of you may be wondering about the title of this shot. I really struggle to name my lightning shots for some reason. I don't have a problem for any others, but when it comes to lightning my creativity abandons me. I asked my FB friends to name this one for me. So here is "Champion" -named after the spark plug brand ;-)

Thanks :D Although, there was so much lightning around this night that it was one of the easiest lightning imaging sessions I have ever had.
