    News Lightning strike

    The big picture: Lightning strike


    This is the moment a lightning bolt appears to strike the Statue of Liberty in New York. New York photographer Jay Fine had spent the night braving the storm in Battery Park City, Manhattan, in a bid to get the perfect picture. Jay spent nearly two hours poised with his camera and took more than 80 shots before striking lucky with this particular bolt of lightning at 8.45pm on 22 September. He said he had been waiting 40 years to get the picture.



    To capture the shots Jay used a Nikon D300s with 60mm f/2.8 lens on the following settings: Aperture: F/10, Shutterspeed: 5 seconds, ISO: 200.

    bloody hell, nice pic.

    Lightening is quite rare where I am in the UK so I'm facinated when we have a good storm.

    40 years to get this pic is a little obsessive though.

    It is alright but I wouldn't have said it was excellent really. Looks a little overexposed to me and this could easily have been tweaked in post pro.
