god strikes the city by twofifty god strikes the city by twofifty
i think i was very lucky with this one. the light coming from the background is bratislava, right behind the border of austria. i only made two shots with the camera set on bulb, and this was one of them. to be honest, i think i'll never ever see something like that again :(

full view! you'll enjoy it :P

god strikes the city by ~twofifty is the perfect example that it doesn't matter if your camera lens isn't quite good or if your autofocus drives you nuts...
When you are at the right place and time, you just know how to do it. ( Suggested by Fufina and Featured by bzed )

AMAZING! I love how the first bolt is faded, the next is a little more intense, and the last is bright and strong... reminds me of a "before-during-after" type thing. Beautiful shot..

This picture is fairly old compared to when I am writing this comment, and I think if I'd seen this on the DD then I most certainly would've clicked on it and been amazed. Thank you so much for capturing such a stunning shot! Weather: it can be so deadly yet it is so beautiful. Congratulations on being there at the right time! :+fav:
