Close Lightning Bolt!

Posted by willz75 on May. 26, 2011

This massive lightning bolt hit about 200m away from our location during a stormchase in Darwin, Australia, you dont see me in the video for good reason as I was sheltering in my car! :O Captured photo can be seen here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/willz0r/5289990107/ The bolt actually hits the tree, the shockwave kicks up a large puff of dust and the resulting thunder scares everyone even the cows in the background lol! Thanks to Jacci for providing some foreground entertainment! :D (very close call for her!)
