Nature has its beauty, weather she's in a pleasant mood or a nasty one. Reached Palolem beach quite late after sunset and with nothing to click, took a stroll along the shore, the clouds were building and I wasn't carrying an umbrella.. well, I did see an opportunity to 'make a picture' and I set my tripod and was waiting for the lightning to strike.. it's frustrating, trust me.. but ass they say, patience pays and here I guess it payed in dividends :)

Hello Prashant, i don't know how you got this image here but it came out GREAT! Getting a thunder at the right moment is so hard but you did so well here. Congrats on the shot.

How marvelous can be the power of nature. With combination the reflections and the lights creates a magnificent image. You've been there the right moment to capture this unique scenery.
Have a nice evening,

Yes indeed, it did pay dividends...what a great capture! These kinds of spontaneous moments can end up being the best for a photographer, this is a very good example. The colors that this has created in the sky and the way that it gives shape and life to the clouds is certainly Mother Nature working her magic. Excellent timing and composition, a well thought out opportunity grabbed at just the right moment. Thanks for sharing.

Wauw!!!!!! Prashant,this is a superbe moment,I know by experience this is xtremely hard to make one must also be very fortunate and lucky,to catch the flash between the monsoon clouds.
I love the palm coastline with the little restaurants so typical Goa,I was there back in 83 and 88 ;=]]Old man..
