Lightning Strikes Twice: FavFotoFriday

Back to lightning! It has been a theme of mine this week after I witnessed the spectacular reds and oranges of the distant heat lightning here in the Philippines. So, that proves lightning strikes twice 🙂

Let’s see what there is on the National Geographic website. Follow me!


Streaking from a sky as red as the earth, lightning strikes the famous dome-shaped, sandstone monolith Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Australia. “I had heard a lot about how beautiful Uluru should look when it rains,” writes Christoph Schaarschmidt, who captured this image. “But I never believed that I would see it with my own eyes because the Red Centre of Australia is a very arid area.”

Both of the above shots were grabbed from Flickr (both creative commons). The photographer responsible for the picture immediately above said this about it:

“Lightning in the desert, with a fire in the distance that was started by the storm.”

I just love nature photographs. I’m in awe at some of the natural phenomena of out planet. I’m also very respectful about some of the extreme weather especially living the life of an expat in the Philippines.

It’s getting closer to the time for me to reinvest in photo gear. I can’t choose between  my old favorite Canon or try Nikon for a change! I just need to save some more money 🙂
