Sunset Lightning
by Wally Orlowsky (Wallyo) 
Nikon D-300
New Jersey
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
Taken from my front porch last week as a major thunderstorm had just rolled though. The sky to the northeast was bathed in color as the sunset reflected on the storm clouds. Numerous flashes of cloud-to-cloud lightning punctuated the scene. I braced myself against the wall and was lucky enough to catch one shot of some lightning. No postprocessing except minor levels adjustments.
