Beauty in the Chaos

As I work at a sailing camp (Camp Don Lee) on the Neuse River, squalls and larger storms appear often. Usually during storms I will sit in the Sailing Loft watching the lightning and clouds, and here is the view. This shot happened at the right time and almost at the center of the frame, illuminating everything and leaving me ecstatic. All of the bolts happened in a single instance.
