I did not go storm chasing today, but said I will wait for them to come to me, and hope they still have lightning in them. 9 hours later, I took my mom out to watch the storm. I set up my camera at the last standing grain elevator in Leader Saskatchewan, where I have lived for 37 years. 30 pics into the 3.2 second exposures, this happened!! It has been my dream capture for years, and tonight it finally happened!

  • Camera: Canon EOS 6D

This shot is the reason I bought the 2019 Wicked Weather calendar. The Leader grain elevator caught my eye. I went to high school at St. Angela's Academy in Prelate in the 90's and an outing to Leader was a big deal for us Academy girls. Great shot, and great memories!

What a great shot! The lightening is fabulous and the way it lit up the buildings in the foreground adds volumes to the detail in the photo. A truly lovely image! Congrats on photo of the week, too.
