Lightning Strike

When I went over to Hamburg for a mass wagon-fest the weather was very changeable.  The first day I arrived in the afternoon the weather was excellent, blue skies with some random clouds.

On the flip side, two days later the heavens opened and the lightning was striking all around the station, the full 360 degree light show.  Just because the storm was overhead did not stop the trains running.  Considering how quick a lightning strike actually takes place a small miracle occurred when I took the shot below, actually capturing the lightning forking across the sky.

I have started to upload the German registered rolling stock, starting with D, E & F coded wagons.
