25 Electrifying Pictures of Lightning Photography

Posted on May 31, 2009 by UNITED PHOTO PRESS

Lightning photography is both one of the most tricky and one of the most frustrating types of photography. You get only one chance for the particular situation - it is not like portrait photography where you can go back in the studio if the photos didn’t come out well.
Photographing lightning at night is relatively easy provided you have access to remote areas away from town/city lights.
The results can be exciting but they are also partly based upon luck.
Here are 25 Electrifying Pictures of Lightning Photography by Digital Picture Zone.

Lightning photos give us an experience of energy that is transfomative in nature. The lightning bolt is a field of combustible possibilites available in the human psyche. When someone is struck by lightning an instant molecular change takes place. If grounded the the person being struck will often have paranomal experiences, such as seeing future events, being in touch with multi-demensional phenomena and a connecting with nature and all sentient beings. In indigious cultures this was the sign of a healer, who lived to bring forth a boon to the community.
