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 is a great tripod XD

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 - it was the best show in town that night, I really gotta say! Mother Nature, u r pretty badass.
