Capturing that elusive flash of light
As a big fan of weather photography, i have always been fascinated by those lightning photographs. Those blue veins of god reaching down to touch the earth have always eluded my camera sensor for the past 5 years. The current downpour lashing the city gave me a good chance to try my luck once again.
My hard work finally paid off. Not exactly NatGeo quality, but what the hell. And the building that you see is the new IT park, acropolis on cathedral road, ouch.
And thats the idiot who tried to photograph lightning from the safety of his open terrace.
It was pretty scary being up there, not knowing if the next strike would be on your head. Also had a tough time protecting the cam lens from the heavy rain and wind. I spent an hour getting drenched, however the wait was worth it, and nature had put up a spectacular show.
And yeah, got my camera working again 😀
