Visibility V / V

Matti Helin, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

In the evening, it started to look like the thunder was seriously coming. I went to the edge of a nearby field and immediately in another picture, lightning (picture 2). Too bad I set the focal length a little too tight.

Later, in the middle of the night, another thunderstorm came, but unfortunately with heavy rain. I had to photograph from under the canopy and the front area corresponds to it. Well, regardless, a great experience. The lightning that struck in the black night sky was almost blinding and a few flashes left small afterimages for a while.
