Some lightning over the valley of Salt Lake City. I love photographing lightning! This was taken with the deck on my house for stability, since I didn't have a tripod part, hence the blurry city lights. I believe that's the Copper Mine
Before photoshop, this photo was way overexposed because I had the shutter open for so long waiting for a little strike, but then finally this massive one hit in a blink of an eye. I messed with the levels and what not, and got this. I am so happy. Kind of disappointed about the tree in the way, but it adds some weird surrealism.
