25 Dazzling Examples of Lightning Strikes
For photographers, Lightning or Lightning Strikes are beautiful creation from Mother Nature. Lightning is an atmospheric discharge of electricity accompanied by thunder, which typically occurs during thunderstorms, and sometimes during volcanic eruptions or dust storms. In the atmospheric electrical discharge, a leader of a bolt of lightning can travel at speeds of 220,000 km/h (140,000 mph), and can reach temperatures approaching 30,000 °C (54,000 °F), hot enough to fuse silica sand into glass channels known as fulgurites which are normally hollow and can extend some distance into the ground. There are some 16 million lightning storms in the world every year.
Lightning can also occur within the ash clouds from volcanic eruptions, or can be caused by violent forest fires which generate sufficient dust to create a static charge. In today’s post we have 25 dazzling examples of lightning strikes. To take a perfect shot, you must focus on Focal Length, Shutter Speed and Second Aperture.
