A severe thunderstorm rolls down from the mountains while I was on a hike on the sage flats above Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone. The photo was handheld and the lightning was captured by standing and waiting with the shutter half-pressed. About five minutes after this shot, I spent about 20 minutes walking through the dime-sized hail and lightning of this storm. What a day!!
