John Vose submitted this photo to EarthSky this week. It’s a lightning storm that took place over Jenne Farm – called New England’s most photographed farm – on July 19, 2015. John wrote:

I was watching large storms building along the western edge of Vermont. There was a particularly large cell with frequent lightning on a path that would have it cross right over the world-famous Jenne Farm in Reading, Vermont.

I raced to the farm and arrived just as the storm started to pass through. I was able to catch several lightning strikes before the torrential rain and wind gusts forced me to seek shelter.

Canon 6D , Canon 24-105 f/4 lens,Gitzo tripod, Manfrotto fluid ball head.

I used the AEO Lightning Strike Pro lightning shutter trigger to help capture the image.
