When the action gets too close.

Whenever a storm rolls in, my first instinct is to grab my tripod and camera and try to capture lightning.

This is exactly what I was doing few days back in India. I had managed to capture just one lightning shot and was getting frustrated but kept clicking away hoping for something good.

The shutter was open when I heard a terrifying explosion and a bright and blinding light right in front of me, not more than 30 meters away.

I had the presence of mind to keep the shutter cable pressed, and was rewarded with this crazy lightning shot.
