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

Love the last one!
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."-- Samuel Adams
