Hi nayak,

Nothing can get better than this pic , a lovely shot and perfect timing.Real good capture.This is something which we dont see daily. Lovely pic



I like this. Hard to get lightning! My freind in Varkala, had a bolt come thru the electrical wall socket, and knock her unconscious. Her legs were also hurt very badly! Dangerous to be near!

Hi Haraprasan

What an amazing moment to capture - fantastic details of these spectacular fireworks!

Wow this must be the most magnificent shot I have seen of lightning! Very dramatic. You managed great detail in what must have been a very fast strke. Colours and tones are perfect. Great piece of work.
