    It was our last chase day with only a moderate risk but since we had to fly home the next morning we thought we'd go for one last chase and hope for something more than just a squall line. As the evening descended, so did a barrage of lightning in Northwest Oklahoma.

    An excellent lightning image here, Vanessa. I believe that by having the old house in the background really adds a nice detail to this photograph. Your composition works very well, by placing the house and lighting strike off to the right die of the frame, my eyes take their time in studying the image by starting with the dark storm clouds then moving towards the house. Great work.
