Finally, Some good Lightning over Raleigh

July 10th, 2008
I’ve been waiting years to get a shot of lightning like this over the city of Raleigh. It finally paid off tonight.
Cloud to ground lightning bolt cracks the sky over downtown Raleigh.

    These pics are GREAT Matt! Glad you were able to catch the clouds and the way the sun was hitting the RBC Plaza…NICE!
    I was thinking… just an idea: Have you been to the Bojangles on exit 319 off I40? That might make for a different skyline view or angle?!

    WOW! GREAT PICS MATT! I was thinking, have you ever captured the skyline from the Bojangles on exit 319 (Clayton/Angier) off 40?!

    I didn’t know you could see the skyline from there….I’m here in Clayton Township and I guess I should check that out.
