Florida lightning storms

April 29, 2013: A severe storm approached northern Brevard County, Florida, just as it was getting dark April 29, so I headed out to try my luck shooting lightning. I got one shot over Port Canaveral with a cruise ship in the foreground that made my night. Share

A severe storm headed for northern Brevard County brought me first to Cocoa, Florida, to try to get some lightning. My exposure wasn't quite right here, so this is a heavily processed shot.

I headed for Port Canaveral in hopes of getting nice shots over the water.

This cruise ship made for a pretty foreground in this cropped shot.

This is a vertical crop from a horizontal - I liked the way it appeared the bolts were hitting the ship (but were not).

A few crawlers lit up the sky as the rain got heavier.

This was definitely the shot of the night! A beautiful crawler lights up the sky over Port Canaveral.
