I've never gotten as good of lightning shots as she has however. I use an interval timer with 30 second exposures continuously during thunder storms to TRY and get shots like this but I never do.
I see a streak behind the wind turbine and one within its blades. Are you sure that's not an aircraft or satellite? The reason I ask is because I routinely get aircraft that look like streaks or even the occasional satellite under the right conditions. Depending on how long the shot was, it could be any of the above, including a shooting star. I'm not doubting you if you know that it's a shooting star though. I say this only because I attempted to get a shot of the meteor shower a couple of weeks ago and only got a few passing aircraft. Bummer...
Yep thats the shooting star. She took it at the same time as the shower two weeks ago.
