ZOUNDS!!!! So how did you feel about being out in the open to photograph this. I lived on the other side of those mountains in Idaho Falls, ID for about a decade. It wasn't uncommon for a storm watcher to become a victim Good that you are safe.
This is an amazing image.
Roger It's still, ISO, aperture and shutter-speed, right?
There are not many times I am jealous of other photographers but THIS is one of them. It has been years since I shot this Teton location picture AND I love lightning shots ... but to capturer both ... WOW can not say it properly but than what can?!! Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture.

Carol, I haven't been lingering a lot in the forums but this morning, had a chance to catch up.
The place, iconic and not an easy scene to make fresh (not boring), the capture (fiat), to die for.
If National Geographic actually compensated photographers who are not on staff for publication, this deserves to be in the magazine and rivals that type of work.(they do not, one signs away all rights to 'join' their online community)
Magnificent, one of the top images I have seen here on Nikonians.
Thanks to everyone. I just came across Hans reply and was very surprised at all the comments. Last time I looked there were not so many. Now my WOW! I am proud of this photo. But, as you all know, there is a whole lot of luck in this photo. It really belongs to any photographer who has gotten up early, shivered a bit or a lot, hoped beyond hope that lightning would strike a sensor. My humble thanks to each of you for your encouraging remarks.
