Artist's Description

This was shot on a canon 300D, on a tripod with a 30 second exposure.
I shot it during a summer storm in Sydney from my grandmother’s apartment building. The weather that night was magnificent, so much thunder and lightning and rain. Luckily i was just far enough away from the storm that there was only a light drizzle.
The show mother nature put on was spectacular and i stood out there for almost 4 hours with my shutter open the whole time.
I ended up taking about 700 shots, with about 80 of them capturing the lightning. You’d be surprised at how many time lightning strikes in between shots. A lot!
The shots from that night are a wonderful reminder of how powerful mother nature can be, especially against the man-made cityscape.
