Lightning near Appin, NSW 3rd April 2014

appin_lightning_crop0304jd06A feast of lightning came through via Appin yet again this evening. This storm was lightning active even as the sun began to set. Some powerful bolts observed filmed and one captured here. This bolt was too close and too bright for F5.6 (I thought I had it higher in value!) A transformer blew up also seen in the foreground possibly the one to the left of the lightning bolt contact with the ground!
