Lightning Stock by doublehelix1033 Lightning Stock by doublehelix1033
I took this on holiday in Cyprus ... great holiday photo XD

I had my camera on burst taking either 4 or 8 pictures every second and kept taking pictures until I took my finger off the shutter button. I ended up taking 447 photos and this is the best one.
It lit up the mountains in the background :D I've never seen proper lightning before in my life and was so pleased that I got a picture like this. The receptionist at the hotel saw it was was like 'whoa!' because the weather was sunny and 23C for the rest of the week.

This is a stock image. Feel free to use it if you follow these rules:

Link back to this picture / me in your artist's comments, and then comment or note myself to tell me you have used it :) I'll :+fav: it too.

Happy Christmas Eve :D

(sorry for late reply)

I was in Limassol when I took this photo :) but I'm part Cypriot, so I've been pretty much everywhere :D

The hardest part is finding a lightning storm.

Oh. We have houses in Larnaca. :)
Yeah lightning storms are tricky to catch. Especially in Cyprus. But from where I live most time of the year they're pretty common. :)

We were pretty lucky to get this one as we were on holiday...I'm glad it wasn't our plane that got caught in it :D
