Lightning has long been a misunderstood phenomenon. Even though modern scientists have studied lightning extensively, a lot remains unknown. Lightning terrorizes, yet it dazzles and delights.
This gallery showcases some amazing lightning photos alongside facts I have uncovered during my research of lightning. Where possible, I will cite sources and give photo credit.
You may notice that these photos of lightning are different than most. I especially enjoy close-up photos of lightning or lightning captured in the act of striking the ground or objects on the ground. If you have any photos you feel should be on this page, please e-mail me and I would be happy to consider adding them here for others to enjoy.
