Hi Bob, the lightning in the second one is another well captured image, but that clouds and mountains, and all the detail in the first one, is captivating

Beautifully dramatic scenes. The simplicity of the lightning is so... elegant. Well done.

I love these, Bob - particularly the first one - I can feel the drama. Super job.

Too right, because then we would see your pics here, would we.
And another thing, How come I never come across those dramatic clouds. Ah, well I still have a few years in me (I hope) to come across them one day.

Greetings
