Awesome ground strikes. Well caught. Did you use a lightning trigger?

I'm glad you all enjoyed the images! I don't use a lightning trigger. These were just fairly long (5-10 second) exposures.

I have done the same thing with some OK results. Nothing as good as yours (but it is so long since we had a decent storm here that there hasn't been the opportunity).
