Birth of the Universe - A Thunderstorm by V-Light Birth of the Universe - A Thunderstorm by V-Light
To say i'm in love with the sky would be an understatement... Heart
Well, i cannot find the words to describe this. This photo was taken at the19th June of 2014, during a distant thunderstorm over the Toronean gulf in Greece. I always had a thing for lightnings but this time together with the clouds it created a breathtaking combination. I love it!

Thank you very much :D If you have a storm season, it's a perfect time for photos! We rarely get any storms here and they are very mild...I was very lucky with this one :) Looking forward to see your shots

Yeah we get a lot of storms in our area but sadly a lot go by us only just skimming us or, simply go by without a trace. We do get to see a LOT of lightning though and some of it is just "wow". Thank you very much and I hope to capture some good shots. Will be keeping an eye out for your future work also!. Hug

Dramatic... and so unusual.

:D Thank you! Well, it's not that unusual, it all depends on how you see things... Our eyes cannot zoom that close into a storm or capture the light for 5 seconds, so i can understand why as an image it looks unusual to us :)

I suppose that's partly it.  But I think you get credit for its uniqueness because of the way you chose to capture it.  It's nice camera work.  :-)

Oh gosh that's funny. To think that you took that shot with a big party almost bouncing your tripod off the floor. I never would have guessed it.

This is absolutely stunning and breathtaking! The clouds look so dramatic, but the colors are warm, that it looks nearly unreal - like from another universe.
Excellent shot!

Thank you :D It was an amazing moment...I was taking wide shots of the storm and they were not very interesting and then i noticed that the core of the storm was not moving, the lightnings where always at the same spot. So i zoomed in, close to the action and i was blown away by the results :D
