Layers over Lightning

Layers over Lightning

Wild skies kept wafting past, as a series of cores in a slow-moving storm complex flung electricity between cloud and ground.  All the while, surrounding sky flickered in a high-voltage disco strobe, a throbbing dance of light, arrhythmic pulsations:  left, right, near and yonder, to the music of differential airflow.  Shortly following this shot, the onset of light rain signaled the time to pack gear and return to the vehicle, with lightning closing in from three sides and above, safety dictating that the photographer choose to live to shoot another storm on another night.
