Powerful Energy! Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
Powerful Energy!
Powerful Energy!
Aperture = 5.6, Shutter Speed = B for 66sec, Focal Length = 190mm (Sigma 50-500mm), Location = Batam Island Indonesia, Taken by = Bernard Fourie, Date & Time = 16 Jun 2005 @ 20:45

I want to share this photo with you all to show you how energy pack nature could be in a blink of a eye.

The reason why I start to take shots of the storm that night was because the way the clouds light up during the storm. Also I always try to take photos of spectacular lightning storms, since there are so many in the tropics. I never expected to capture a strike this BIG & POWERFUL. Lots of patience & bit of luck paid off for a 1 year's effort.
