Skywatch Friday - Fire and Lightning


This shot shows a fire burning in the river bottom (not as close to the houses as it looks) with a lightning strike in the distance.  Often the lightning starts the brush fires, but in this case it was careless persons unknown.

Happy Third Birthday to SkyWatch Friday!!!  Please join in the celebration and enjoy other views of the skies worldwide at Skywatch Friday.

(This is a re-post of our favorite Skywatch Friday photo in celebration of their third anniversary.)
