Default Calgary Skyline at Night

The weather called for lightning after midnight so I set my alarm clock to wake at midnight.....it went off jarring me out of dreamsville and for a moment I thought the world was coming to an end! After slapping that alarm clock silly, I sprang out of bed almost fully awake and knowing, somewhat, what I was getting out of bed for, I did all this very quietly as to not wake the wife

I had everything waiting for me at the back door, so I checked the weather again on the computer confirming a "risk of thunderstorms" after midnight still awaited me and like a thief in the night, I grabbed my gear and slipped out the door without the dog barking like mad......however, he was wagging his tail which thumped on the walls with such force to rattle the dishes in the cupboards.

Off I went, it was rainy but I had my "rain sleeve" for the camera and an umbrella just incase I was going to have to stand out in the rain and because I knew how the weather system was moving, I drove to location only to find that no lightning strikes were coming. The system had somewhat subsided and I took this shot marking the moment.

Interesting effect but it looks overexposed.
