Lightning Bolt

Lightning bolt over city at night

I was in a house in Jerusalem when the thunder and the lightning started. It was strange. There was no rain. Just thunder and lightning. It went on like that for something like fifteen minutes. I started going up to the roof to check it out and on an impulse went back down to grab my camera. I held a shopping bag over my equipment, worried that it was going to start pouring any minute. This was the last shot I got before it started raining.


TECH INFO: Canon EOS 70D with a Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 (at 17mm); 6 sec at f/11, ISO 100;  I mirrored the bottom of the picture to make it symmetrical.
