Three Strikes

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Jamie Markle

This lightning show is from an epic storm the east coast experienced on Friday, June 29, 2012, leaving millions without power for days. The light show was merely a precursor to what was about to follow. An appetizer to a four-course meal. It was pitch black from where the shot was taken, and some bolts lit up the sky like it was daytime. This particular little beauty came right in the middle of a long shutter speed. She made quite the introduction!

Location: Waterford, Virginia, United States
