My husband took these pictures of the lightning from our home in Elma, WA on 07/13/2012. The first (DSC_1563) was taken at 9:21 pm and the second (DSC_1565) was taken at 9:29. We thought the second somewhat resembled the profile of a man's face and the first is simply fascinating. The pictures were shot toward the east as the storm approached our area moving westerly and was approximately 2 miles away (counting how many seconds between lightning and thunder and dividing by 5). It was the best storm I've EVER seen in W. WA in 35 years!
