Rare, close "clear air" lightning striking tree caught on camera in 4K and in slow motion... And then the tree catches on fire.

It was one of those storms where close cloud-to-ground lightning was striking all around me in the rain free clear air. Luckily I was able to capture several amazing strikes on two seperate cameras. One camera is a 4K video camera with a global shutter and the other is a slow motion camera.

The second lightning bolt hit the ground right behind the tree as it was still burning. This is only a fraction of the amazing close lightning strikes caught on camera on this day. My next video about this spectacular event will go into more detail.
