Even though Pedro Hamers took a very long shutter speed to shoot this lightning in the middle of the night, his patience was much, much longer.

If he had created a making of video of this one, I guess he would have bleeped out a lot of the soundtrack.

Camera: Nikon D3100
Lens: Sigma 17-50 2.8
Shutter Speed: 21 seconds
Aperture: f8.0
