Title Lighting Strike/ Thunderstorm over Koh Lanta
Description This shot was taken in Thailand
My girlfriend and I, who were travelling together ate dinner in a little village on the beach when suddenly huge thunderclouds, approaching our island very fast, came into sight on the horizon. Our hostel was about 8km away and after we ate the thunderstorm was away only a few minutes.
We had to drive back to our hostel with our scooter as fast as we could and hoped the thunderstorm wouln't reach us until we arrive there. While we drove, the sky was enlightend every ten seconds and the thunders were frightening. While we drove, the sky was lit by lighting strikes near the coast every 10 seconds and the thunders were frightening.
The clouds now nearly reached us but I really wanted to have a shot these huge lighting strikes, so after I drove my girlfriend to the hostel I drove a little further to the beach which was 2minutes away and tried to get one on camera.
After a few shots, I had to drive back to our hostel because it started to rain heavily. At the hostel I was happy to see that it was worth it.
