This massive clear air bolt (cloud-to-ground lightning bolt) hit about 200-250m away from our location. Here in Darwin, Australia these bolts can leap 15-20km away from the main storm striking a dry area surrounding the storm. You don't see me in the frame for good reason as I was in my car! :P :O

A photo was captured using a Canon 1DMark IV and lightning trigger made by Stepping Stone Products, LLC - http://www.lightningtrigger.com/

The bolt hits near the base of the tree as a large puff of dust can be seen after the initial strike!

Thanks to Jacci for providing some foreground entertainment! :D
