This photo was taken in the Champagne (Département Ardennes) near Rethel during a four day stormchasing tour through western Europe in 2014.
For several days parts of France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany have experienced a very rare weather pattern with exceptionally high energetic airmasses and strong wind shear. This lead to quite a few very strong thunderstorms racing over these areas again and again and again, most of them of supercellular nature.
During four days of strenuous stormchasing through France, Belgium and Germany mother nature showed us her power and beauty at her best – days like these are the reason for any stormchaser to go through all those agonizing moments of continuous decision making, weather forecasting, driving hundreds or thousands of kilometers may be for literally nothing, waiting bored for hours, missing the right spot, arriving too late or staying at the wrong place at the wrong time.

This is one (SINGLE EXPOSURE) of the top 5 or so shots from the night and I think the lightning is kind of shaped just like a thunderbird so this is the one I choose to post. Thanks for looking !!!
