Connie Bransilver explains "Bolt": South Florida thrives on rainy season storms. They roll across the flat wetlands leaving their gift of precious water, but only after raging with lightning, thunder and fierce winds. A bolt of lightning is reflected in the wet prairie of Fakahatchee Strand, captured and distilled from its racing, angry cloud. For safety, I had to photograph it from the car, balancing the camera on the window and not looking through the viewfinder. I captured the lightning only once out of about 30 tries.
