4 Bolts

by Kristi Hines · Arizona, Fountain Hills


Another photo from my first serious lightning shoot. Haven’t caught a good one since, but that just makes all of the captures from the first time more special.

This one was almost a 5-bolt… can you spot where the fifth one almost emerged?

WOW! This has to be one of the hardest ‘moment’s to capture. WOW!

Booya, that’s a GREAT image here Kristi! Yeppers, we sure can see where that 5th bolt was starting to emerge. Love these shots you’re posting this week of the lightning, we don’t get any of that up here so we can only check this out through your lens!

Great shot. I love the way you were able to capture the texture of the whole sky. Something I wasn’t able to do in my shot (here: http://dmitrisanimation.com/img/2011_05_29_lightning-in-toronto )
