On 18 August, 2008 was like any other summer monsoon evening. I started out around 7 P.M. to try and catch a few lightning strikes. I postioned myself around the new Cochise County Courthouse Complex in hope of catching a strike using the building as a measure for depthness.I had some luck this past summer doing this with other objects. The storm's were passing through on the back side of the building and heading southward. I had captured two or three lightning strikes earlier in the evening from this same location. Around 9 P.M. I was about to call it a night when in a matter of a millisecond this strike happened. When the image appeared on my LCD I suprised how much detail there was in this strike. It was the last lightning strike that I saw that evening. I feel lucky, or call it fate that I stayed as long as I did, or I would have never gotten this shot.
