An early morning walk down by the Arnold Docks rewarded Jon Jacobson with a special sight. It's not too unusual to see lightning here in July, but rarely in October. More of Jon's work can be seen at Picture Michigan.

This reminds me of a Pasty Cam adventure back in '98, when I sat in the car up on Bumbletown Hill during a lightning storm. I must have tried 20 time to capture one of the flashes, but it was like attempting to eat jello with chopsticks. Finally... BOOM and I clicked a startled, lucky shot.

Thanks for another good glimpse of the east end of Pastyland, Jon.

No other pictures capture the feeling of being in the the UP like the PastyCam.....

Great lightning shot. I don't mean to be a stickler for details, but it is Mackinac Island, not Mackinaw.

I think I expended nearly two rolls of film for three nice lightning shots and a killer sunrise the morning this shot was taken.

Mackinac Island is always full of surprises, and this particular morning was no exception.
