Lightning Over St. Catherine's Lighthouse

neil williams

Photographing lightning can be both exhilarating and frightening. There's a lot of guess work involved. You set your camera up on it's tripod and shoot long exposure after long exposure, hoping lightning will strike. Close enough, but not too close.

I was up all night on this occasion, chasing the storm fronts around the island. As I pressed the shutter on this picture, I felt my skin prickle with the static in the air. It's an exposed spot to be standing during an electrical storm with a large metal tripod. But excited with capturing this double strike, I decided to risk one more. The next exposure on the film is bleached white by a strike that left me sitting on the ground with my ears ringing.
