From Brian Gailey Photography: In this close up, an explosion is visible in the hills around the Link River Canyon. This is most likely a tree exploding from the lighting impact or a power line transformer.

From Brian Gailey Photography: This single bolt hitting a power pole in the Link River Canyon is doing so much. At first glance, it looks like any other lighting strike. Until you look close and see that the lighting has blown a transformer that was not directly hit. Also, visible is where lighting arched across power lines in four locations. (bottom right).

From Brian Gailey Photography: A single bolt of lightning, lighting up 2 transformers along Lakeshore Drive, in Klamath Falls.
