On our first trip out West while in the Badlands we had a storm with lots of lightning and no rain and I finally got some pics,just before our camper was damaged.
The apartment building where I met my wife, 28 years ago, there was another amateur photographer that went through the ceiling of an apartment after trying to get to the roof to get a pic of lightning, so be careful out there. ;-)) and it wasn't me.

Wow, that's funny. I will be careful where I stand. I was on solid ground when I took these. Here in ND there are a lot of wide open spaces so you don't usually have to get above the buildings
