Get Electrified (Full Moon Edition)

Carrying forward from my last full moon blog post- Its Electrifying (Blue Moon Edition), here are some more incredibly awe-inspiring lightning images I came across at MyModernMet. The full moon for December already occurred on 27th December, 2012,but its never too late to share these photos that in some way convey the intensity and wildness of nature, which is also represented by the full moon in popular culture.

Some of these images are the result of the photographer being at the right place at the right time while others required assembly of composite image or stacking multiple photos to get the final result. One thing is common between all these images- hard work! It takes milliseconds for a bolt of lightning to strike across the sky, which is why photographers have to set their shutter speed in 20-30 second range and use manual focus (according to Pentax Australia).
