Great title, Bits, and a cool shot.

LOL Dianne - but the storm had already passed! Given what the storm cloud looked like, it was surprising how quickly the sun came back out.

Thanks not1word !

Thanks Steve! I should play up that I stood out in the middle of an open field, through a thunderstorm, ignoring my personal safety to get these shots. But I have to admit, this was actually just turning to the right of the Monster Cloud view, it wasn't really even raining yet, and lol, there were many others there watching who were taller than me so they would have been the lightning rods if a bolt came down out of the cloud :D
