First Strike

Just because you
didn't see me
Doesn't mean that
I wasn't there.

Did u know that on average there are 25 Million cloud-to-ground lighting hits per year or ~48 strikes per second ... and that is only counting continental US :O Still I had managed to capture only a very few till date ;-)

Being one of the most unpredictable forces of nature, lightning storms present unique challenges in photographing them. Lightning is probably happening all thru the day, but its more rewarding to photograph them once its dark or during twilight, when the foreground accentuates the composition. I had been trying to capture lighting for a while now, but it all came together only this particular evening. How do u like it !
