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.
