Thanks guys.

Super simple.

Never shot lightning before, so I 'winged' it.

One drawback to living on the southern California coast is that we don't get that kind of spectacular weather.

Yeah, probably. Not too many in the area. :-)

Those lights are homes in the area. I think the storm was actually several miles behind (South/West of) Mt. Pisgah.

Not sure where leo was. Canon City? Guffey?
