Incredible lightning strikes A look at some of the most stunning photographs of lightning strikes from around the world in 2011.

Photographer Mike Tan took the shot from nearby Polson Pier: “It was a bit frightening at times, seeing that the strikes were not more than 5km away. But then the photographer forgets danger, just to get ‘the shot.'”

Photographer Chris Kotsiopoulos explains how he captured this beautiful photograph of lightning bolts in Greece: “An image sequence containing 70 lightning shots, taken on Ikaría island, Greece, during a severe thunderstorm that took place June 16, 2011. In order to make the sequence, I set the camera to a tripod taking 20-second shots. After 83 minutes I ended up with this wall of lightning!”
