Beach Lightning

“I’m very passionate about landscape photography,” says Your Shot member Rudi Gunawan. “For me, nature always reflects the power of the sublime, and as a human, I’m very grateful to be part of the experience. This shot was taken while I was on vacation with my family at Tanjung Lesung, West Java, Indonesia. I was looking for the sunset moment, which unfortunately never came because the sky was so cloudy and covered the sun.”

But Gunawan could see lightning strikes in the distance. “Quickly, I set up my tripod, changed my camera settings, and let the camera adjust the shutter speed automatically. I made a couple shots and angles to capture the moment, and after around 15 minutes this is the shot that really described what I felt about the sublime qualities of nature.”

This photo was recently featured in the final story of our Nature in Black and Whiteassignment.
