Lightning Strikes Bishop’s Cap

Lightning Strikes Bishop's Cap
This pefectly-captured photo of a lightning strike on Bishop’s Cap was taken by David Cutcher:

“This photo was taken 2 years ago, mid August. The digital camera I used took about 45 seconds to cycle after each shot, because it was ‘computing’ its way through the dark. I’d taken more than 30 shots, decided to abandon my perch & get back in the car as lightning got closer. This was the only really good shot. The lens was already open when the lightning happened.

Pure luck.”
