This was an awsome thurnderstorm in the City of Asheboro, NC. I am fascinated by lightning. Its a force of Nature that kills more people each year than Hurrincanes and Tornados. Most lightning strikes average 2 to 3 miles long and carry a current of 10000 Amps at 100 million Volts. Lightning reaches 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit, 4x times as hot as the sun's surface. Around the earth there are 100 lightning strikes per second, or 8,640,00 times a day. I shot this strike from my roof.

    Hanging out on the roof during a lightning storm is probably not a great idea, but that sure is a great shot!
