The Perfect Storm

Those who know me know that I love to observe the weather. Some also know that I have tried capturing photos of lightning. Yesterday, with our electrical storms in the area, I tried again.

Here, the storm is approaching...

An hour or so later, I made the attempt with my camera...

After several attempts like that, I finally got one! You can't see the streak of lightning,
 but I sure got the full flash effect! I was thrilled that I "happened" to click the shutter
at the right second...

(no photo editing done here)

It looks like it is daytime but this was taken only a few seconds after the previous photo,
 one hour after sunset. I researched a bit and discovered that a flash of lightning 
averages one billion volts but can have as much as six billion! I don't know how many volts
this one had but, this I do know, the Creator of this lightning is my all-powerful God and I am blessed
beyond measure to know that He is in control of my life and can do ANYTHING!

The voice of Thy thunder was in the heaven: the lightnings lightened the world:
the earth trembled and shook. (Job 36:32)

He covereth His hands with the lightning, and giveth it a charge that it strike the mark. (Psalm 77:18)
