Thunderstorm Rising

And here's a panorama taken from the same location. Beautiful evening, and it smells like rain... (Click here for the full size view, and note that you can click the image again once its loaded to see the unscaled view - 1.0 MB)

So here's my very first shot of lightning - taken looking Southeast of Billings, from up on the rims. Out of 180+ shots, this is the only one I actually managed to capture. Not spectacular, but its a start...

[Addendum: FWIW, I wasn't the only one out snapping photos last night - Dennis Rogers, who takes GREAT photos, got this shot looking out to the west. Want to see some more of his stuff? Try this, this and this for starters. Welcome to Montana folks!]
