Unique moment up in smoke


“We all know the dangers of sequels. Lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place too often, and I think you’ve got to move beyond it, go the extra mile and have the courage not to just repeat the first one”. —  Colin Firth.

We all have been told repeatedly that it is dangerous to stand under a tree during a thunderstorm. It is doubly dangerous to do so and hold an umbrella at the same time. These two women were standing in a nearby schoolyard last week during such a storm.I wanted to capture their photo. I positioned the camera just so and as I snapped the image the flash initiated. The woman appears to have been zapped by a lightning bolt. That is only an optical conclusion. — gc
