Late Last Night, a thunderstorm rolled in with a cool looking gust front/shelfy cloud, looks like staked plates. Anyways, it was a pretty decent lightning producer, CC variety, only saw 4 or 5 CG's.  Got about 20 images with a visible lightning bolt.

First here's the Shelf of the storm comming in, it was quite a view when lightning luminated it...

Here are the best Lightning shots, during the storm...

Great to see those images Tyler!. That's a very nice stacked shelf, great timing getting the entire gust front lit up by lightning. Nice lightning captures to, I especially like the last one  Smiley

What time of the night was this?. Was it severe warned?

Thanks very much for sharing those. Makes me want to get back out to see some weather action myself.
