Lightning display over Florida

I watched this storm form as a rather innocuous spot on the weather radar and absolutely explode just after sunset into a huge thunderstorm complex. Though the Florida Peninsula is known to be among the most active locations in the world for lightning, this was easily the best fireworks show I’ve seen yet this year. Photo taken on July 1, 2015.
