It wasn't in the forecast but tell that to Mother Nature. A spectacular lightning and thunderstorm made it impossible to sleep late last night and early this morning on the Mendonoma Coast. Fortunately most of the strikes were over the ocean. Paul Kozal set up his camera and caught this beautiful photo; it gave me goosebumps when I saw it.
Thanks to Paul for allowing me to show you this wonder of nature. To see more of Paul's photography, here's the link to his website: http://www.paulkozal.com/. I particularly love his mushroom photographs.
