Why do you want to remove them? To me they add to the image. Nice shot,

While I do agree, it would be a tough job with the clone and stamp tool in Photoshop.

Not an easy fix here I think Bert.

I am thinking it might not be TOO difficult to remove these in Photoshop as the areas around are very evenly lit/coloured (violet on my screen). Was it completely dark at the time? I am guessing that it was raining heavily at this point, hence the overall softness of the image. Great shot! It certainly shouts 'violent stormy night' very loudly!

this is my thinking, very fine graduations of same colour area, clone stamp would be hard as its fixed in pattern.

How about trying to use selection and layers? You can copy a part of the photo using say a feathered lasso selection, overlay a rain drop spot, and then position the overlay layer until it fits the right place. It might work, too?

Actually I was thinking the same but in a bit more radical way:
1) create a "blue sky" layer
2) create a selection of the flash and the landscape and put it on top of the "blue sky" layer
3) lighten the areas around the flash on the "blue sky" layer

Should be quite straight forward.
