I was up late one night when there was a big storm coming, and it was about 12:30 a.m. when I ran outside to the field behind our farm with a tripod and camera. I used a long exposure to capture all of the lightning in the storm, and the long exposure also let in a lot of light to make the clouds brighter. When I was out there, I couldn't see any of the clouds, but when I took the picture, all of the light from the lightning lit up the whole sky and showed all of the lightning strikes! I used my phone flashlight to light up the soybeans so they wouldn't look black. I got back inside quickly before the storm hit!
