    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     The power is out this morning for photographer David Sowa after an intense thunderstorm rocked Chicago on Monday night. After the rain let up a bit, Sowa raced to a friend’s house at Ashland and Ogden Avenues to photograph the storm with a view of the Willis Tower. He used a 15-second exposure on his Nikon and an Instagram filter to capture this image of lightning striking the tower. Want to see footage of the lightning strike? See CNN’s electrifying video.
