The photo is from a 1:00 a.m. lightning storm that passed through the Bitterroot Valley Thursday morning.

The bolts striking on the left are near the Como Peaks and the main lighting bolts are striking the Roaring Lion and Sawtooth canyons at Ward Mountain. It was part of a series of thunderstorms that lit up the early morning hours in western Montana.

Thanks to Mike Daniels for the amazing shots.
