Remarks & Notes 
As severe storms move across Northwestern Minnesota, I was able to get some lightning action while staying dry. The storms were moving SW-NE and brought some very strong winds. It took many attempts to pull this shot off, but finally after 45 minutes of watching bolts strike north and south out of frame, I nailed one right above the power. Minutes after this, torrential wind whipped rain drenched the area.

Lights In The Night (Sundown to Sunrise)! Railroads In Another Perspective!

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
