Late night thunderstorm
We had a thunderstorm to the north (and west) of us last night, and I was lucky enough to catch a few of the strikes.
Unfortunately, the bulk of the action was over 120km away. Even so, we got quite the show - and it demonstrates how far lightning is visible!
This first shot, the strike was about 40km away, out to sea.

The strikes in this shot were approximately 120km away (according to the strike map).
