Lightning strikes Miami

Miami often has thunderstorms and lightning, especially in the bay. Rarely though are the skies clear enough to capture lightning events. This photo is capturing a cluster of angry clouds that ultimately released the biggest lightning (captured here) of the night, it was even more grand in reality, lighting the city and its sound rumbling our walls. Just a reminder, there are greater things in life.
