Tonight I was blown away by the lightning storm that rolling in from the west over the Jupiter Inlet Beach Park. I was doing some fishing hoping for some Spanish Mackerel when the clouds started to roll in. I decided to give up fishing and shoot the storm. It started to rain so I left the camera on auto pilot hoping to get a good lightning bolt. This one I thought was completely blown out but when I played with the RAW file and did some tone mapping in Photomatix I was able to produce a decent shot.
