Lucky Snap as a massive storm cell moved over Tampa Bay 8/03/2006. Angle is pointed above the house across the street from my own.

I didn't even wet my pants.

(this is my very first lightning shot ever, I'm pretty proud of it! )

Great shot

Congratulations on your first lightning photo.
You couldn't have done better if you planned it.

Brilliant shot lucky or not, 80% of brilliant shots are by chance shots, you captured this lightning strike superbly exposure right on the money, well done
