Anyone in the UK witness the thunderstorm last night/today? I hear it was all over the south of the country.

Anyway I was wondering if any of you got some super cool lightning pictures! :D

I got these:
[EDIT: This second one for some reason has rotated itself 90 degrees anticlockwise... no idea why...]

If you didn't witness it or aren't from the UK, feel free to post any lightning pictures you have taken before :D

Thunderstorms aren't very common in the UK, that's why I made this post :P

I went on the VT chat room about it because I couldn't sleep. Practically every minute was some random flash and it was like 2.30AM and I was scared the hell out it was AWFUL

It's usually pretty dry down here, except for in the spring when the storm of the century comes down and floods everything. :/ Texas.

Yeah, I loved it, but I didn't look out for the lightning. The flash rain has been amazing too though.

Some of you might have loved it but i bet if you were also in a tent by the north coast of Devon you would have had the worst night ever. I swear I didn't even sleep and the lightening kept flashing, the tent felt like it was going to blow over or rip and flood with water I swear.

Last night in my area there was a bit of thunder and lightning, but it wasn't really a storm. Wasn't as bad as the night before :P
