Although there was no indication in http://people.ee.duke.edu/~cummer/cmc/new6 of sprite activity, a extremely active, continuous lightning display was occurring to my north from dusk through 11:30PM when more clouds moved into my area.


I was attempting to capture some pre-peak activity of the Perseids Meteor Shower, when this lightning storm appeared. In nearly two hours, a recorded at least 15 sprite events. These images are the better ones.


Used Nikon d7100, Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 @ f/2.8, iso 1600, and exposure of 10s. Photoshop was used to increase contrast and reduce some noise (grainness).
