Rainbow and lightning

As the evening  thunderstorm developed quickly, I rushed to set up my cameras to try a new way of catching lighting. To my surprise, a rainbow appeared right int the middle of the frame. My approach to catching lightning worked and I got a distant bolt with the rainbow and another that struck less than a half mile away. Since the method involves shooting continuously, I have plenty of frames to make a time lapse video.
