10 million volts in 30 seconds…

Christmas eve and morning I got possibly one of the best presents ever ! In the form of a spectacular lightning show that literally lasted ALL night and the best thing was I never had to venture more than a few km’s from home!

Here is just one from the night taken with the 50mm 1.4 and uncropped  🙂

  7. WOW! Fantastic capture Tony!

  8. spectacular Tony! do you shoot at 1.4 for lightning?

  9. One of the best lightning shot I have seen Tony. Great work mate.

  10. Perhaps the most electric lightning shot I have ever seen, certainly the most detailed and finely branched. The colors are gorgeous, and the contrast between the exrtreme energy in the sky and the placid water is riveting.

  11. Fantastic shot! I don’t think i have seen a lightning shot so sharp or with such beautiful colors.

  12. Spectacular shot! I’m horrified at this face of nature sometimes showing its powers : )
