The Strike
THE CLOSEST 12 STROKE LIGHTNING STRIKE EVER CAUGHT ON VIDEO!

ONE LIGHTNING STRIKE
WITH 11 RETURN STROKES


“The Strike” is an extremely lucky capture that is considered to be the ‘Closest 12 Stroke Lightning Strike Ever Caught On Video’.  I am thankful for this capture, yet I would not recommend that anyone attempt this since it was obviously NOT MY INTENTION TO CAPTURE THIS PHENOMENA at that moment and luckily I was not injured.

Many storm chasers capture beautiful artful expressions of LIGHTNING and other severe weather phenomena, but Professional Storm chasers do it SAFELY.  I would recommend for anyone attempting to capture natures dangerous beauty to first READ ALL SAFETY REQUIREMENTS before attempting to do so.

You can access a vast variety of LIGHTNING PHOTOGRAPHY, EQUIPMENT PAGES and SAFETY RELATED websites in my links page.
