For a little while the storms were firing up far from us. I did not let this stop me from getting the most colorful and possibly the most beautiful night scene composition I have had in awhile! It still includes a lightning bolt about 40+ miles from my location!I took this photo of this baby alligator after Hurricane Hermine caused extensive flooding in Myakka State Park. He was on the side of the road. I am sure I was being watched by a parent alligator not far away but my friends and I were taking turns watching out for them as we each took photos.
