24 Beautiful Lightning Pictures

I love thunderstorms. I lived in an area once that was known for having some awesome shows of power by nature and I would routinely just sit outside on my porch to feel the thunder and watch the lightning display it’s marvelous beauty. It’s amazing how much attention we give to how much power humans can create through our own technology and thinking yet nature continues to make the strongest armies bow when it decides to release it’s fury.

Here are 24 great photos of lightning.
