Excellent shot, Mike.
This photo is another of your special hallmark.
Yes thanks Laurence you got it in one. I just love the drama of lightning photography and have taught myself how to reliably do it. My preference is single lightning strike rather than multiple.
Magnificent, Roberto! This is really brilliant and your photo is worthy of good study.
No excuse from me, pun definitely intended:- Electrifying!!!!
Superb image Roberto a “Brilliant” shot well done
Super shot well done
superb capture well done
Great picture to start the day. Congrats, Mike.
Great photo, Mike. It must have been damn impressive to witness this real time!
As ever from you – as to be expected(!) – another classic masterpiece of your magnificent photography doing full justice to the awesome cloudscape and landscape. You certainly know how to spoil us with wonderful shots like this as portrayed here.
This is, forgive the intended pun, a monumental photo as per the rock edifice on the left of the photo. This is certainly an image I will not forget. Its impact is immediate and penetrating. That the photo is depicted in monochrome beats colour any day, at least, that is my personal opinion.
Thank you Laurence.
Yes, another outstanding and profound lightning shot!! A real “holy moly” moment for the eye and camera.
Thank you Joan.
Indeed a superb shot well done
Thank you Michael.
Grand shot, Mike.
Carping criticism – I find the red light at the far right hand corner at the bottom of your otherwise lovely shot rather distracting from the overall heavenly vista above.
Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately that red light on what is Adventure Island now locally referred to Sandals Island (Sandals now have exclusive rights to it) is part of their private set-up over there. I could have cloned it out. I have numerous day and night-time shots of lightning striking behind the island some locals say because of iron there from shipwrecks. True or not I’m not sure but I do have a significant number striking that region beyond the reef in deeper water.
But I was fortunate to live and work there for 3+ years and views like this could be daily events during certain times of the year. Just had to get the camera out paraphernalia and point it (trying to miss the light).
superb Image well captured
Thanks kindly for taking the time for your appreciated reply.
I hope my comment about the little red light did not cause any hurt or offence – neither was intended. I apologise if this was the inadvertent case.
I have today, if ok with you, employed your marvellous photo as my current screensaver. Thanks be, due to the formatting of my screen etc the little red light does not appear in the overall picture. It makes for a lovely view!
Laurence – I don’t or didn’t take offence in any way with what you said. Equally I do not object to you using my photo as a screen saver. ‘Tongue in cheek’ I would say my aim is to have everyone using my photos as screen savers!
Quote from Paul…
“Last night this entire region had a series of some of the most incredible electrical storms I’ve ever seen”.
Superb image Paul well captured
A to be expected typical grand shot from you, Paul.
This is a big “WOW!!!” photo. I would ascribe the following in appreciation of your magnificent photo:- astounding, atmospheric, awe inspiring, electric (pun intended!), powerful and truly memorable, Oh, GEEZ!!!
Maybe, who knows, this marvellous photo might possibly be a good candidate to feature in the CAS 2018 calendar?
Thanks for the sharing of this wonder.
Thank you Michael and Laurence.
I agree with you, Laurence. This is definitely a calendar-worthy photo. Bravo, Paul.
This does it!! A most magnificent lightning photo I’ve seen! Yes, it should make next year’s calendar and the “Cloud of the Month” as well. The colors are truly electric blue. Oh, my.
Thank you Ginnie and Joan.
Good shot, Paul!
Amazing – well caught!
A very good shot of lightning in what looks like a small localised storm system.
Thank you Adolfo, Maxine and Michael.
Fantastic capture nature at it’s best
Good picture, Guilherme. I guess that there are lot of them behind this one.
