Lightning Hits The Hill 4:27:99

A double-strike in process @ Tarajories, Hill of Health, where Chief Red Jacket's Ceremonial Rock nests @ the crown. This slide was taken on outdated 1000 speed Kodak color print film, capturing the streak just before the break into its double strike to ground exploding the base of an old, old 4 foot diameter oak during a lovely Spring storm. Not necessarily that dramatic with great lightning photos abounding on the net and elsewhere. However, the point being, the photographer was engaged in another activity at the time and was again interrupted by that 'still small voice,' as they say, to grab the camera, head for the south sliding glass door, and grab the shot, which she did, only one taken, as another demonstration in 'the listening.'
