Severe Thunderstorm

Hall County Nebraska as well as surrounding counties were hit with a long line of severe thunderstorms on a late Friday night well into Saturday morning. This image was taken from a parking garage across the street from the Hall County Courthouse as the storm came through. Because of the trees (which added to the composition of the image), I braced the camera against my left knee pointing it slightly upward trying not to obscure the top of the steeple, tripping the shutter when I saw a glow of light. After using this wide angle zoom lens for close to a year now my opinion is that it’s flawless. It’s tack sharp from corner to corner at all focal lengths and it renders colors beautifully.
