Seems like mother nature is just showing off now, you guys.
As seen in the photo above, an Arizona real estate salesman somehow captured a rare natural spectacle -- lightning striking the ground while a beautiful rainbow arcs across the sky. Greg McCown, who describes himself as "addicted to photography," was finally in the right place at the right time to get the shot during a recent storm, one he's been trying to capture for years.
"I was just trying to find a foreground without telephone poles or other junk in the way," McCown said in a post on Facebook. "Found it just in time as this was the last bolt to strike before the storm dissipated into nothing."

Now, somebody just has to capture a double
rainbow with a lightning strike.
