Lightning show

I was throwing the trash after dinner tonight when I looked up and saw flashed of light in the sky. "Lightning!" I thought to myself, and these are not one-off shots in the stormy sky. It was a veritable lightning storm happening somewhere out to sea, and it was lighting up the western sky in brilliant flashes and cloud backlighting.

Here's two of the better ones I managed to take, but they have been brightened to show the lightning better:

I wonder how many gigawatts of electricity are in those clouds...
