Lightning strikes over Lac Mercier

A fierce thunderstorm in the Mont-Tremblant area of the Laurentians in Québec last night. Steady sheets of lightning, howling wind and hammering rain accompanied the thunder that rang across the valleys for hours. This photograph was from Lac Mercier just after midnight. When this lightning cracked, it shook the gazebo I was standing under. I left a few minutes later – I’d had enough and the rain that followed shortly afterwards was of an almost biblical level. It was time to get home.  I will share a few more from the night soon but my son and I are off to Ottawa to visit Parliament Hill.

  1. I also drove through a big thunderstorm in W. VA., US, in mountains. Egads. But you got a superb shot–thanks.

  2. Storms on lakes are scary, in my opinion. I wonder if it is because of the lay of the land? Regardless this is a keeper shot!

  3. Fabulous. I got to drive home in just such a storm Tuesday night. I’d much rather admire your photo.
