A massive strike of lightning fractures the sky over Leeds, Yorkshire. This was the very first shot of a thunderstorm I took on the way home from work one evening in September 2005. Still probably the best strike I’ve ever witnessed. The shot also captures a rare upward streamer in the bottom right hand corner. Click here for a larger version.
