Vigorous discussion of the images and techniques is welcome and encouraged. Criticism of any mod for their choice is not. Please note that this is "Picture of the Week"; do not confuse that with "best picture of the week", which is a concept of which we have no understanding.

It's a one in a million chance to press the shutter button at the exact moment a bolt of lightning strikes.. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: ..OK..I'm kidding, but this is a great shot and I hope that bigsarge wasn't using a tripod and holding an umbrella in this location. A wonderful storm shot and a worthy contender for POTW. Well done bigsarge7!

Wow, Didn't expect to get Picture of the week for it. It was down a dirt road about 30 mins from home with a friend, thunder came within 2 seconds of the bolts so I jumped in the car with my cable shutter. Within 15 seconds of being in the car I captured this shot. So glad I jumped in the car! Thanks again for pick of picture of the week! Might have to get this one printed and framed.
