"QUANTUM SHOT" #178


Collection of hair-raising electrical storms

Most visually effective lightnings occur over city skylines, somehow. That must be due to the added element of danger; they might strike a building or wreak havoc on the city's energy grid.

Various skylines featured here belong to Toronto, Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore; other backdrops to heavenly unrest include the Arizona desert, Bryce Canyon, Baltic Sea, Madeira island or a nameless field in Wilmington, North Carolina. In every case, the display of electrical storm lights is both humbling and exhilarating.

Most (if not all) of those unattributed pics are from Webshots. I recognized them right away since I see them on my screensaver all the time!

Love the site, btw!

I am amazed that I actually have lightning photographs of my own. The circumstances were strange— basically, an Independence Day fireworks celebration that was pushed a little ahead and condensed because of a storm rolling in... and then the lightning started, much to my glee.

My favorite two are here and here. And due to the fact that I was on a riverbank at the time with a three-inch tripod (yes, lying on the ground), I'm very pleased with the results.
