Today at the TCAAP WVA, I saw a Shelf Cloud and Lightning

I saw a big line of thunderstorms heading towards the TCAAP Wildlife Viewing Area tonight. Since there wasn't any rain yet, I headed out there with the 35mm f/1.8 and the D7000.

The shot on the right is handheld against the bridge at 1.6 seconds, f/1.8, ISO 100. I tried longer exposures but didn't get anything remotely sharp. The last thing I wanted to do is bring my metal sticks (tripod) out to the exposed bridge. Lightning was everywhere.

I processed a couple other shots and posted them here, here and here.
