Theo Bosboom - Thunder and lightning


Taking pictures of lightning is a bit like taking pictures of the aurora: it can be a challenge to get a decent shot of it, so you are happy if you finally get one sharp in a reasonable composition. The real challenge is of course to get the lightning (or the aurora) in a breathtaking landscape, so that the whole picture is interesting. As you can see, I am not that far yet and still in the stage of just capturing the lightning 😉 But I will keep trying!

    I love how you've captured the clouds opening up for the flash!

    Nice one, Theo! I especially like the fact that is daily shot... amazing. Be careful with those buddies, though... Nice to see you in the NL: you have a beer waiting for you in Italy!
