Caribbean Lightning

Flying over the caribbean sea, it's not uncommon to find some small yet very powerful isolated storms developing over the night. In this case, the storm was small enough, it didn't reach the tropopause yet. Still, it had a great deal of power being released in continuous lightning that I was able to capture with a bit of luck.
