I sat with my elbows on the pier railing, steading the shot without my tripod. Lightning was starting to strike and the frequency of the thunder had begun to change as it got closer to where we were. Most people had retreated to their cars or gone home.
I thought to myself that someone standing on a pier during a lightning storm and mentioning to strangers that she'd been struck by lightning once before is probably looking for attention. Alas she had already left so I couldn't oblige. All that was left was me, my camera, my fishgut-covered arms and a pretty beautiful bit of approaching atmosphere.
