In at the strike

BoltThere’s something amazing about this for someone interested in photography. It’s quite simple in many ways – almost too simple. I’ve no reason to think it’s a hoax – statistically it was bound to happen to someone. It’s just a story about someone experiencing an electric storm nearby and trying to capture it on camera, then as the shutter opens (on admittedly the fourth attempt), a bolt hits just 20 metres away. Split second timing – or just luck – it’s the ultimate in ‘caturing the moment’.
