Lightning Storm in Toronto – August 9, 2009

lightning_in_toronto_04Magical lightning storm in Toronto tonight. It was brilliant. I caught a few photos from my garage (below) and when I felt it was safe, braved the elements and made my way to the waterfront to catch the storm as it headed South over Lake Ontario and into New York. It was an amazing storm, and though I was about twenty minutes late for the best parts of the show, I caught a few brilliant flashes.

More photos below, including one I am sure that captures the blot that knocked a down a tree on Kipling, killing power to a few city blocks and blocking the two northbound lanes.

Taken from the cover of my garage:
This is the one I am sure hit the tree on Kipling.
