As the sun was setting on the 24th of December 2010, the most incredible scene presented itself to me a classic Stormy Sunset Thunderstorm Lightning Photo. I saw storms starting to build from around 5pm but thought they had arrived too early and the chances of catching the storms doing their thing at sunset seemed a bit of a long shot.
In the last 10-15 minutes of the sun setting I saw there was a gap on the horizon and the potential for something amazing to take place. I dropped everything grabbed my camera’s and shot outside into the maize field. What happened thereafter was pure magic as nature pulled out all the stops and put on it’s fantastic light show for me. I’ve shot a few storms at sunset during the last 6 storm seasons but personally I think this one currently sits right at the top of my personal favorites and will probably remain that way until I one day (hopefully) ever top this.
I never expected anything for Christmas that year but Nature rolled in with this wonderful surprise for me and there’s certainly no complaints from my side.
