Bolt of Lightning by Loiissipoff Bolt of Lightning by Loiissipoff
Taken in Branford, outside New Haven, CT.
The evening we arrived there it was a thunderstorm. We went down to the beach to look at the bolts and I tried to capture one on a photo... It wasn't very easy... I hadn't managed it, but before we went back I tried agan, and this time I was lucky :)

Hope you like it!

Thank you! Actually I was quite lucky with this shot, it was before I got a dslr (which would have made things easier) and all I had was a small compact camera. I just took pictures randomly and was lucky enough to get one shot of the lightnings :)

Cool, it's a great investment to get a dslr I would say ;) Personally I'm a Canon fan though, Nikon confuses me haha. But of course they can be good too :)
Haha, really? Well of course I'm ok with it, I'm glad you liked the picture that much! :)
