First Strike

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Jeffrey Sullivan

I set up camp on the top of a mountain to photograph clouds changing color at sunset, but I ended up capturing much more as lightning strikes began, and continued for the next 2 hours. In addition to this single frame, I produced a timelapse movie from over 1000 images, and I also produced a composite image featuring star trails over the energetic storm.

Location: Sweetwater, Nevada, United States
