Summer...always the season for thunderstorms here in the south of Brazil. During the storm we live the hell. At the end of the storm, we can always watch the calm seas and so many eletricity on the air. After the thunderstorm, fresh air and a peaceful night... and some pictures! Cheers!

Hi Jose
This capture is good evidence of the fact that lightning strike from the bottom upwards. Although that is not what the eye perceive.
Great composition and lovely colours. I like the fact that you have included the miniature wave with the beach in the foreground. That gives tremendous depth to the photo. The rock formation breaks the 'monotony' of the flat ocean and that purple haze is just super.
Very well done and TFS.

This is an amazing photograph. I agree with Loot's comments. The purple makes for a beautiful image, though seems unnatural to me.

de toute beauté , bravo , magnifique ambiance !

Amitiés !

I to find the purple quite strange but does give the image some mood. Nice POV well done

Beautiful colours and great moment.
Thanks for sharing!

Great capture, beautiful shot, José!!!

Hi Jose,
This is an excellent shot. Very beautiful, well saturated color in this. I love lightning shots, and this one is excellent!

Hi Jose,

another lightning beauty!!! Like the tonality. Well done.
btw, thanks for your comment with nice welcome for me.. :o)
REgards, RAdim.

Zeca - I really love this picture. Purple is one of my favorite colors, and I love the tones of purple you captured in this photo. The island that's off center in the photo also adds a lot -- without it, the photo would be too plain. Good lighting, nice color, very beautiful shot!

Hi Jose!
Thanks for your visit.
I am fascinated by lightening, and terrified too! In my childhood in the Himalayas, we too used to experience lightening and thunder during spring and run scared when that happened.
I love the colours in this beautiful shot.

Hi, Jose.
Excellent shot! Great timing. Well composed and very nice colors.

Beleza heim Zéca?
Belo trabalho voce tem, parabens

Hello Jose, another magnificent shot. So simple and powerfull at the same time. The color is also very impresive. Perfect DOF. Congrats, Gabriel

Hi Jose,

My favorite... i love it.
Amazing colours and composition...
lack words me...

Excellent work!!

TFS :-)

Hello Jose,

This is a real "electric" photo.

Chance smiled to you on this one. But only the one who tries gets the chance.
I love the colour too. Also this picture could be used in a Physics class.

Cheers, Petru

Great capture with only 2 seconds exposure.
Nice compo and details,

Jose- Wonderful composition and depth of field-- I love the color and how I can see the lighter "fingers" of the lightning reach upwards.
