One evening at Big Bend I noticed a little electrical storm and drove around to find something sort of mountain or object to put in front of it. I found one spot where a bluebonnet-rimmed road pointed straight toward the lightning, added a little bit light from a flashlight and clicked the shutter.  A bit later, I found a spot a bit closer to the mountain and lit up the foreground with a flashlight.
