Without my favorite feature the bracket mode on my camera this shot just would have not had the range need to produce such a wonderful display. I now bracket every picture I take.

A severe summer thunderstorm passes to the north over the Gulf Of Mexico on Clearwater Beach, Florida.

I was very lucky here, did not have a tripod and it was a multi second exposure, had to set the camera on the rocks and use the self timer -;0)
