Lightning on Tower Bridge

Posted on January 31, 2014 at 6:20 PM

This image was captured by amateur photographer Daoud Fakhri while he was touring the capital during the wet and windy conditions. He was testing out a new lens for his camera by taking pictures of the historic bridge on the River Thames, when the storm hit, creating this amazing scene against a backdrop of dark grey clouds. Mr Fakhiri claimed the shot was completely unplanned and 'pure luck'


Although absolutely beautiful in its raw form, lightning can be a devastating act of nature. It is just fortunate that no one was hurt during this storm while on the bridge.  When you are a first-hand witness to something you can't help but have a new-found respect and awe for its power.
