Lean back from your monitor, it is a big photo, and you might get electrocuted.

This shot is incredible Maverick. Do you have a secret to capturing lightning, or is it the luck of the shutter?

Setting up for the capture ahead of the storm, and a lucky shot of the bolt
in the right place, and even more luck not getting electrocuted.
