I like being as close as possible to the action when I'm down in Tornado Alley, but this bolt was too close for comfort. The thunder shook the ground, and was instantaneous after the bolt flash. I was using a wide angle lens, so it was closer than the shot is showing. This was on June 1st, just to the north of Ord, Nebraska. A night tornado, as part of a QLCS, passed right over us later that night.
