Leader up a guy wire.
Ii was talking to my brother Paul last night about this photo I took a week back of a nearby lightning strike and a small "leader" bolt I caught arcing up the guy-wire on a telephone pole.
These "sympathetic" bolts arc off nearby wires all the time, but the main strike is usually so bright we don't see them.
Not the best lightning photo - but interesting.
