This image was taken nearly 6 years ago on my wedding anniversary in New Bern, North Carolina. My wife and I were having our "second honeymoon" traveling from New York to Florida, and as we were passing through North Carolina a big storm was coming. I stopped at this abandoned little house, used my car lights to illuminate the house, put my Nikon D2XS on my tripod and waited for lightning bolts to hit. I couldn't have planned the location of the lightning bolt better and to this day it remains a favorite of mine...
Camera settings: Nikon D2XS, 20 sec at f/21, 11mm at ISO 100, flash fired. Taken at 8:38pm on July 17, 2007 by Jason Lanier.
