Equipment Details:

Canon 5d Mark IV 30 seconds on intervalometer at f4. The shot completely overexposed but I was able to bring the cloudes and bolts out a little bit. This one hit really close, shook the house, power bump etc.

Post-processing Details:

Lightroom to retrieve those areas not completely blown out by the proximity of this strike.

Image Details:

Strong storms across the south and NE FL on 4/23/20 and I set up the camera on 30 second exposures and got quite a few shots. This one was almost completely white and it shocked me I was able to bring this much of it back into view.
