Thunderbolt & Lightning!! Very, very frightening!!! (Actually mostly just awesome Lol!)

So a couple days ago there was a lightning storm over the ocean :O!! 
Caught purely by chance, it was my first time ever trying to shoot lightning wahaha!! It's so unpredictable & crazy fast that I wasn't sure if I would even be able to catch anything in the frame LOL! Luckily, I have the most amazing boyfriend ever <3 so at 12am he drove me to the pier & waited with me in the dark while I propped up my camera on both of our jackets on the railing to shoot :) . 

Manhattan Beach Pier was a great tripod XD!

It was pretty cool that there were clouds as well :D! Yay & u know how much I luv the clouds! There were also people having bonfires down on the beach, & it was so funny to hear them cheering and yelling "Wow!!!" for the lightning too hehe - the best show in town I really gotta say! Mother Nature, u r pretty badass.
