These last couple of days in Mumbai have been good, meteorologically speaking. We’ve been witness to a great display of mother natures fireworks – thunder storms. So, out I was on our terrace with my camera trying to capture a bolt of lightning in all its glory. No real technique – low shutter speeds, low aperture and a lot of patience!
This first shot is of a bolt pretty high up in the clouds, which couldn’t be directly seen but lit up the sky. I especially like the silhouetted buildings in the foreground.
This next one was taken at a different time when the sky was still aglow red because of the impending storm.
Pretty close! Look out for a sliver of lightning between the buildings, down at the bottom of the pic.
Finally, the coup de grace!
