Lightning Strikes Over Half Dome, Yosemite NP

This past Monday I was off chasing an image I'd been hoping to capture for years - a lightning bolt hitting Yosemite's Half Dome. My new blog CHASING A DREAM SHOT chronicles my day and the creation of this image (as well as others).

As you can see, the cell was in position but the strikes were cloud-to-cloud and not cloud-to-ground. Nonetheless, I was very please with this image and my chase will continue!
