This photograph is one of the most dangerous ones I have created. I was trying to get the lightning to go off behind my subject and then I would provide the lighting for the subject in the foreground. Instead, the lightning hit the building 100 yards behind us lighting up the entire surrounding area before also reaching out into the sky in the background directly behind the subject. And to those who have never been this close to a lightning strike it felt like bomb going off. This is the original photograph although I did darken and make it black and white I DID NOT alter the content in the photograph itself, this is real.
