Here about 10 pm, in Tallahassee, I tried to take pictures of some lightning flashes in a nearby thunderstorm.
This one flash stood out amoungst the rest of them, many were inside of clouds.
This image comes from a avi video, actually, from my canon powershot camera!
I was able to extract just one frame, and use it as a "still" image.
Tallahassee has about 75 to 90 thunderstorm days a year and this only counts the storms that hit the station, not those that are far off in the distance! If one were to count a "day" as one seeing a thunderstorm off in the distance, somewheres, why the Count coud be as much as 150- 200 days a year!
