If you think it is "crap" then offer the photo as free Stock for others to work miracles with your art. You will be reasonably blessed with tons of "hits" as people will come to your page to download the free stock (and some artists here at DA already know about this). Just make sure you have them credit your photo and provide a link to where the photo is. this one here I can predict will get you at least 50,000 hits or more within a year.
Excellent shot. I am very familiar with really close up lightning as any time we have thunder and lightning our house gets struck. It used to blow the light fixtures out of the ceiling, but since the place was rewired it just crackles through the sockets. The sound from that lightning strike must have been visceral.
haha indeed! Where I live is basically lightning capital of Australia ... in the summer time the sky lights up with amazing strikes which sometimes hit our neighbors houses and in one case mine which knocked the Arial on our roof and sent it flying into the pool!
