Image Details:

Start of the rainy seasonal in the Philippines. Thunderstorms are very frequent every afternoon.
I shot this at f22 and 1/8sec on ISO50.
When I saw the first flash, my reflex told me to press it, by then a second flash happen, and this third flash was the one recorded. Lightning during daytime is hard to capture unless you have sensors that triggers the shutter automatically.
