    Bay Bridge Lightning Strike


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     pilotphil captured this 20-second exposure during a rare lightning storm.
    - rachel8, CNN iReport producer

    On April 12th, 2012 a rare thunderstorm moved through the bay area. I have an incredible view of the Bay Bridge and often thought that lightning would find the metal structure irresistible. I waited 2 years for that storm. I set my camera up to repeatedly take second 20 exposures. Once the storm has passed, I went through all 136 exposures looking for strikes. I was lucky enough to capture 3 separate frames. This image represents one of those exposures.
