Time-lapse captures spectacular lightning storm in Chicago

This time-lapse was made during the big storm that hit Chicago last Monday. The dark clouds moving fast and the lightning strikes on the skyscrapers remind me of that scene from Ghostbusters where the city is possessed. Anyway, it's reassuring to know that Chicago can take it and everything still works fine.

I live on the North Shore of Staten Island and was able to capture this photo during a time lapse I shot on July 2nd. I got a few others but this one stood out since the Freedom Tower and the Empire State Building were struck at the same time.
