Lightning at Glass Beach


  This was near Fort Bragg, CA during a rare summer thunderstorm. It was after sunset but not yet dark, and the storm was moving north along the coast. The lightning strikes all seemed to be out over the water so I felt fairly safe setting up my tripod and camera on a bluff at Glass Beach.  I focused my telephoto lens on the area with the most action and opened the shutter for almost a minute, long enough to catch two or three separate strikes.
