This is from my all-time favorite lightning chase, July 11, 2011 east of Parker Colorado. This is looking Northwest back towards the Denver Tech Center. I was able to split two cells but the southern one was slowly encroaching; and it finally caught up to me (simply too dangerous to hang out longer) making this the last picture of the night! Below is a composite of two pictures (I try to only catch one bolt per image) from about 20 minutes earlier in the night.
