Perseid Meteor Shower and Lightning Storm

Perseid Meter and Lightning

Had finally gotten out of the lightning storms from Mattawa to Selah on 08-14-2014, so I stopped at the rest stop just above Selah by the Fred G. Redmon Bridge at 1 AM. The lightning looked to be heading in my direction, so I started to shoot and got lucky with a HUGE perseid meteor. It was quite large and exploded a bit. The smoke trail it left lingered for at least a full minute.
