Ok I will start

I took this out at Lions River a while back. Just got lucky doing a time exposure to try and capture this shot.

My wife and I were in the Waterberg on Sunday evening when we saw the storm moving in. Set up the Nikon D3100, and got these pics of the lightning approaching. Eventually it was just too close and we retreated to the relative safety of Faraday's cage (Our tent  ;D)
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.
