Summer is naturally the time for thunderstorms and Lake Superior can produce some spectacular ones. These photos were taken a few nights ago around midnight at Whitefish Point, Michigan. As the storm approached no actual bolts could be seen the the clouds were almost constantly lit up.

As the storm neared a few bolts could be seen, but were not completely exposed.

As it passed close to the northeast some amazing strikes really lit up the night sky.

Unfortunately, after just a few of these amazing strikes the sky opened up and it began pouring sending me and my camera gear dashing for the 4Runner.
