Half dome lightning strike, glacier point, yosemite || this maybe wasn’t my brightest hour, but i really, really wanted to photograph lightning hitting half dome. i got my lightning before it got me, so all’s well that ends well. (uh, don’t try this at home, kids—i’m a trained professional….) okay, seriously, there’s no such thing as safe lightning photography—the best you can hope for is “relatively safe.” this afternoon was probably the farthest i’ve pushed that threshold—i moved to safety shortly after capturing this image.
