[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

On the same trip to Stana de Vale, in the Western Carpathians, we had a really great storm one night. Our camp site was mostly avoided by rain (LUCKILY), so i was able to shoot the mountains around us and the spectacle of light over them. Lightnings were impressively frequent (about one every 3 seconds) so it was possible to capture more than one in a single exposure - as is the case here: 2 big ones on the left (one with visible bolt and one higher behind the clouds) and another one behind the set of clouds to the right.

Hope you'll like it and thanks for visiting.

Hi Horia,
You lucky B.... to be in the outdoors and having a thunderstorm so close by but not getting hit by it. It certainly gave you a wonderful opportunity to capture it and you captured an awesome show. I especially like how parts of the upper clouds are illuminated and how the familair purple color is appearing. And, you even managed to compose it in an excellent way.

Hello Horia,
Spectacular thunderstorm with amazing lightnings. And that all within 8 seconds. Very beautiful colours and composition.

Salut, Horia!
Spectaculoasa furtuna ai surprins aici:un cer intunecat brazdat de fulgere care lumineaza conturul orizontului intr-un mod dramatic...
Toate bune!

Hi Horia,
Most impressive shot, I love it, the exposure, the timing the composition, The cloud formation couldn't have been better, the beautiful of nature work of art, the lighting is the a perfect addition to this wonderful composition, it would have been just as beautiful without. the Silhouette of the trees and hill are perfect elements to provide depth to the image.

It goes straight to my fav. My complements.

congratulations Horia,
