I Don't Care If We Are Going Down

A stormy dark night. Lightnings and thunderstorms. Out of electrical power. Sitting alone on my balcony forever. With my camera. Lightning flashes. My camera flashes. Trying to capture the beauty. This was the best from the lot. Lightnings can be very shy.

Delhi, 2010.

Great lightning capture; I have never managed to do this. I like the blue, and the threads of lightning away from the central bolt, even going horizontal to right.

once i was in a lighting storm and i put the camera on the dash of the car aiming out at the lake and left the shutter open, was very cool, but would have been more impressed with myself i have caught lightning 'by hand' lol great shot!!!
