lightning-Aarthi Shankaran-Chennai-India-1am

Aarthi Shankaran in Chennai, India

September and October are the storm season over the Bay of Bengal, India. This storm season I was working on a timelapse capturing the nightsky lit by lightning. This was one of the images from a collection of lightning images captured this season. This particular night, there was so much of activity, I only wish I had more cameras pointing in all directions! More than the photo, it was the experience of being alone, standing there drenched, amidst the fury of nature, surrounded by lightning striking in all directions, with heavy roars of thunders. I also feel sorry for the people who lost their family members because of the storm and the lightning strikes.
