The Mesabi Miner freighter ship was cruising on Lake Michigan the other day and a mate who was in the pilot house when a storm rolled in caught an amazing picture of a lighting strike over the lake.

The picture was taken by mate Jack Brandenburg from the 1,004-foot Mesabi Miner freighter ship which was traveling down-bound on Lake Michigan.

The power of nature is amazing, beautiful and scary.

Hope you enjoyed this picture as much as I did.
