Lightning photo downtown Cedar Rapids from 6-1-2010 storm

Lightning photos from June 1st, 2010

I started chasing this storm early in the evening and continued until about 1:00 am. It was truly a beautiful light show provided by Mother Nature as two to three different storm fronts rolled through the Cedar Rapids area.
