As a child I was fascinated by lightning. In 1998 I caught my first shot of lightning. That first photograph stirred something within me and I found myself captured by those stormy skies. 

My first shots of lightning were taken with my finger waiting impatiently on the button for a flash to make me take the photo. Hence at lot of return strokes, except for those wonderful anvil crawlers:)
