Will of the Gods

By sitan1    
During the recent thunder storms we just had at our little town of Eastbourne.
I was just going to bed when the lightning started so I grabbed a camera a lens and cable release and rushed to the seafront.
First of all the rain was unforgiving and soaked my Nikon D750 and Tamron 15-30 but thanks to weather sealing and being built like mini tanks, once the rain stopped I carried on shooting like nothing had happened.
I only had one issue and that was my cable release wasn't working so I had to keep pressing the shutter button and self timer mode which wasn't ideal as this made me miss quite a few epic strikes.

Wow, a dramatic shot, produced against the odds considering the limited control afforded by the self timer.
