Q: How do I download my original images?

A: Do you know?

Here we have a new bridge added next to the Old Narrows Bridge and a too close for comfort bolt. It struck just up the hill from my position with a deafening pop. Once I gained my composure and tried to seperate the light from the sound I realized they occurred almost together as one and I knew it was time to go.

I packed up a few moments later and was gone right as it began to torrent down rain hard. This is one of the the closest strikes I have captured.
