Lightning Show in the Sky

Electrical stormJust last weekend we witnessed some maddening thunder and lightning on the outskirts of Mumbai.

It was hair-raising stuff, as if the sky was going to explode. Heavy downpour was followed by lightning.

Unfortunately we couldn’t take pictures, rather were too scared to take pictures in open fields.:) But that gave me the idea for this post, to see some amazing pictures of lightning and electrical storms from around the world. What happens when lightning strikes?

This was over Sydney skyline, when there were 750 lightning strikes in two hours. Lightning strikes Sydney This one is simply electrifying.

    Hi there,

    Love your Kakadu photo of lightning. I’m wondering if ABC could use it in a photographic feature story about the Dreaming story of the lightning man? You would still have copyright, but we’d need a higher res… please email me?
