Lightning

A weather front rolls in from the horizon, storm clouds darken the sky, and (at least 1.3 billion times a year) lightning strikes. Last month, the National Weather Service promoted their Lightning Safety Week, with information designed to call attention to safe practices, helping people avoid lightning strikes which kill an average of 100 people every year. While the exact nature of the initial formation of lightning remains a subject of debate, what is known is that lightning strikes are caused by electrical imbalances present in the clouds. Those imbalances correct themselves suddenly, with an often spectacular light show - which I've tried to show here, with a handful of recent photographs of lightning from around the world. (26 photos total)

Lightning lights up the sky behind City Hall as a line of thunderstorms moves through Athens, Ga. Thursday morning, June 18, 2009. Over 4,000 people lost power in Northeast Georgia during the storm. (AP Photo/The Athens Banner-Herald, Kelly Lambert)

Shame you weren't able to include photos from the amazing storm we had last weekend... It was the storm of the century, and possibly beyond!

Posted by Ricardo July 29, 09 01:38 PM

MRD: It looks like #18 was "sharpened" which gives the lightning bolts darker outlines. So, not fake, but slightly tweaked.

Absolutely fantastic selection. From early childhood Mosez has been fascinated with lightning .

1.21 jigowats? Oh, sure. We can tie into Hoover Dam with a very long cable. Or we build a turbine on the back of this thing and you can drive it over Niagara Falls. Or you can drive across the country at 88 miles an hour and hope that you get struck by a bolt of lightning.

#18 has been sharpened, and they overdid it a bit.

#24 is my fav - great exposure and colors.

To those who say #18 is oversharpened...maybe it's because it was originally published in a small-town newspaper without the greatest ink and paper quality, so they were just overcompensating to make it look decent in the newspaper.

Posted by Lindy July 29, 09 03:52 PM

Where are all the "What a mighty God we have!" comments? Maybe #9 was a subtle reminder that they should keep their noses out of this one?

A picture says a thousand words, and pictures of nature's power and grandeur usually dwarf any superstitious myths presumed by anyone.

Please keep the nature/science photography coming. The political sets are interesting and valuable, but the human interest sets are mind-numbing. I am not even usually disappointed by those, so long as I get some pics like these often enough.

Comment on #21 is wrong. If the planes were illuminated by the lighting, the ones in the back would not be any darker than those in front. The planes are reflecting decks lights (this is a long exposure shot).

Posted by Bart July 30, 09 07:54 AM
72.

Great pictures! But I must comment on #18:

The image has had far too much "unsharp masking" applied to it. Unsharp masking is a way to make an image appear more in focus by darkening the dark side of image feature edges (hence the dark borders around the lightning) and lightening the light side of image features (the light border along the treeline at the bottom of the image).

Even a casual user of Photoshop knows not to apply unsharp masking so much that it becomes obvious. I'm surprised that the AP put this one out there, it pushes the envelope for photojournalistic manipulation of an image. Photographs of lightning always have a slight halo or haze around them and trying to unsharp mask it away was a mistake.

We had some rain with thunder and lightning a couple of nights ago that woke me up, but it was nothing compared to a storm a few years ago that was so close and loud that I thought the lightning would hit the house (I was standing on the front porch watching the spectacle).

Beautiful shots! A pretty crazy lightning storm took place here in Vancouver last Saturday July 25... it happened on an amazing night... an amazing RED SKY sunset, with Rainbows... cued out by a CRAZY lightning storm. On the same nght of our annual worldwide FIrework competition. Celebration of Light... we knew the next morning there would be a flood of photography online of fireworks with lightning.... here are a couple shots of that night:

I noticed, that most pics are dated 2009 July, regardless of their locations. Is that a coincident, or July had been a month of unusual weather? I have experienced bad storms, they are scary and I like to close my eyes, when lightning strikes, waiting for the awsome sound, that follows.! Certainly I would not be able to take photoes during a storm. Makes me feel very small...

Some years ago, a very large church in San Diego topped off their new building with a gold statue. No sooner than they had it up, lightening struck it (In San Diego!), and they had to take it down for repairs. They didn't find this nearly as amusing as I did.

"What's with the phony "moon surface" sky in number 12? That's not a real life photo at all"

Think this are water droplets on the outside of the camera lens, or the water resistant camera container. Only slighty a bit out of focus because of the shallow depth of field from the wide open lens.

Trying to harness that power of nature, has been on scientists minds for many years now. The fact remains that electricity cannot be contained. It has to be generated and given off. Even if you would tie all of the submarine batteries in the world together... a lightning strike will fry all of them.

Kinda strange to think that without lightning, live in earth wouldn't be possible.

The set poster #34 linked to is really cool. What's the chances of two people taking a picture of the same lightning bolt? Has to be astronomical!

I agree with the consensus on #18 - photoshop was involved. Hopefully just in sharpening, but as soon as I looked it, my brain screamed "Fake! Aeeeiiyyyiii".

Anyone know why the buildings in Bankok in #14 are so blue tinted? Do we think that's just an effect of the lighting from the storm?

I don't have time to read all the comments but I saw no references to our
massive debt to lightning. We owe our existence to beautiful but dangerous
lightning! Every bolt creates from hundreds to thousands of pounds of nitrous
oxide which filters down and makes ALL agriculture possible. And that makes
you and me and these pics possible. Where are the Lightning Worshippers?
