Default "Super" Charging SSE

I wasn't sure where to post this, so I thought I'd take a chance on the lounge...

My 93 SSE has always had supercharger envy and I caught her getting her own version of "supercharging" Saturday nite:

If that'* actually real lightning caught in a pic, that is a very special picture.

Yeah, it'* the real stuff. I had to lighten it up a bit to get the car to come out (which made it a bit grainy), but the lightning is authentic. I had to leave the shutter open for 8 seconds and hope for a bolt to occur while it was open. It took a few tries and some luck before I captured this one. There was a little breeze blowing and having the shutter open that long captured the motion in the trees - that'* why they're a little blurry. Stupid city lights give the picture that yellow look.

The picture wasn't intended to be a shot of the car, it just happened to be in the picture of the lightning. The lightning was prolly about 7-10 miles away.

LittleBird'* sig pic is cool. Drawing lightning like that is FAR beyond my ability.
