The sky fired up over the Atlantic Ocean, offshore from Cocoa Beach, on August 24. A line of storms paralleled the coast and shot off lots of lightning. Cheryl Chang and I tried to catch some of it. Here are my photos, looking east over the Banana River toward Cocoa Beach. Digital images.

This was one of the first times I've seen lightning bolts distinctly reflected in the water. Though I've seen the light reflected before, in these photos, one actually can make out the lines of the bolts, probably because the water was so calm. Digital images.

Here's a crawler extending across the sky ... and another. Digital images.

Here's a last lightning shot. When the lightning ran out, I did my own light painting with a small flashlight in front of the camera. Digital images.
