This past Saturday I was out capturing some images of the Supermoon. Storm clouds were present that evening and just as quickly as the clouds lifted to show the moon, then came back again and with a vengeance. We had heavy winds, rain, lightning and hail in a matter of minutes and I was leaving the area just as my car was being pelted by the hail. Luckily I was on the edge and no damage to my car. Some of the lightning strikes struck in open fields not more than 1/4 mile away. I knew I was too close for comfort at that point.
I did manage to capture a lightning strike on the horizon before it got too close. I call it my warning strike.
