To Gwen...I promise no photoshop here. It was a long exposure with a ND filter. Took about an hour of failed attempts to finally get the shot I was hoping for.

I learned a technique in photoshop, it gives the illusion of real lightning, looks just like this....great photo regardless of how this image came about.
