Split the night

We had a storm last night, which I decided to enter into. This is taken from under a bridge.

    Super, fine shot... ,-)
  • Mai An Hoa 9y

    Very nice comp. I like the repetition a lot, the repeating elements lead the eye nicely to the lightning. Cool.

    A ONE initiative

    Robi-do, you took my word...
  • Pnina E. 9y

    7 very well composed and exposed( again...) I like the diagonal , crossing the nearly squared area. I wonder what is the fire? at the bg.
    Juxtaposition of natural and human lights. Was worth getting wet....

    My dog just about crapped himself when one of these came down. Very impressive.
  • Pnina E. 9y

    Added to my favorite.
  • Lisa T 9y

    Well done on getting that. Yes, we all saw it, but I bet only a few recorded it like this. Thank you.
  • EriQ. 9y

    Great image... The power of nature!
  • cornel gingarasu 9y

  • Krakras 9y

    Did I see this picture before?

    Thanks : Neil, little black panther, Mai An Hoa, Monitor, Robidooo, Pnina, frazze46, Swamibu, the clutterbells, nuddaladden, lisa dp, Eriq, vetlife2005 & Krakras.

    Pnina - the "fire" is a lit water fountain, which seems appropriate for this night.

    Swamibu - it'll happen, you just need to get out there (but shoot from somewhere safe! It took about 150 frames to catch the lightning 5 times.)

    Krakras - You saw a darker version before, different frame
