Lightening Over the Gardens

So last night as Angie and I were packing up the car with our gear from Allie and Paul's wedding at the Frederik Meijer Gardens, we saw the lighting streaking across the sky and immediately knew we had to try to capture what we saw.

After a few tries, I nailed a few shots, which is harder than it looks. But in the end I think I walked away with some pretty awesome shots!
