Lightning Over Greece

Zeus must’ve been really angry! Photographer Chris Kotsiopoulos (previously
on Neatorama) took this photo sequence of 70 lightning over Ikaria Island,

Fire in the sky! This is a photo sequence containing 70 lightning,
taken at Ikaria island during a severe thunderstorm that took place
the night of the total lunar eclipse at June 15, 2011.

In order to make the sequence, I set the camera to a tripod taking
20 second shots continuously. After 83 minutes I ended up with approximately
90 lightning shots. I had to exclude around 20 because the photo condensed
so much that didn’t look nice. Also, in many shots I have captured more
than one lightning. I believe that the number of actual lightning captured
that night is more than 100.

I do landscape photography since 2006 and this is my lightning
personal record! The previous is this
with 42 lightning captured.
