Re: Tom Skilling says....

Yes, I agree Tom, it could be some type of internal reflection between sensor and lenses. But I don't discount the drift theory either.... or possibly, maybe, as an outside chance or long shot, the IBIS played a part... ducking quickly for cover.

I dunno,

Sure, and I accept that she wasn't shooting through a glass window. Don't you think it's a really strange coincidence then that the image I posted shooting through a glass window shows as exactly as can be imagined for two different images, the same type of effect? I think it's an internal reflection from her lens(es). Has it ever been documented that you have one bright (normal) lightning strike accompanied by a somehow dimmer one dozens or hundreds of feet away that matches the path exactly of the bright strike?

Hi Tom,

Since it's a lightning strike and travelling more than the speed of the wind you mentioned below, I think we can rule out the blurring as an issue... don't you think?

. . . And she's already said that she wasn't shooting through a glass window.
