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.

Single strike to the West. 115mm, f/5, 30s, ISO100, Samsung NX1, processed in Snapseed.

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

Composite of multiple strikes to the North, over the lights of Hillary's Boat Harbour, heavily cropped. 50mm, f/4.5, 30s, ISO100, Samsung NX1, processed in Snapseed.

Sadly, the storm mostly collapsed after this, and we packed it in after another 20 minutes of no strikes. Naturally, as soon as we got home, we heard thunder.
