Stormy Capitol

In what has become an all-too familiar sight for South Dakotans this spring and early summer, storm clouds brew up lightning and heavy rain over the Capitol building in Pierre on June 22.

Great photo, cool colors...did the storm produce hail? It looks like that eerie color just before it hails! AND bonus cloud to cloud lightning. Do you use a lightning trigger?
Keep it up!

Thanks. No hail out of this one, at least in town. I've never used a lightning trigger, just long exposures and hope I've got the shutter open at the right time. There was a lot of lightning in this storm, but not consistent in timing or location. I shot around 50 frames and this was the only one with lightning where I wanted it.
