Here is another one from my lightning´s serie. This time we can see twins, just over the sea. It´s from the same place, Caiobá, south of Brazil, and I had the chance to catch it from my apartment´s balcony. The colour, this time blue, is different from the last post, purple, maybe because the lightnings are stronger, double, and closer, making more light. I hope you like it. Cheers!

this is an amazing shot. very well captured.
the double lightning bolts add an amazing symetry. and you're right, this is much more effective than the single bolt you posted earlier.
a brilliant photo. very, very well done!

I like this one...

Cette photo est impressionnante. Tu as su être là au bon moment. Ce bleu est très beau et la symétrie des éclairs parfaite !
pastadog (13111) 2006-03-08 9:42
Hi Jose - it's like an electric dance; the blue/purple (instead of black) makes this shot so original and dramatic, and also of course the sea, with the colors, reflections; the sea actually looks so calm relative to the violent thunders! and to think you saw and shot all this from your apartment...Thanks for sharing! Daniel

Ou sem nada para fazer...
A perfeição no desenho dos raios está muito boa e a cor também.

doesn't really look like the best time to go for a swim. Good catch
Floydian (30970) 2006-03-08 11:16
Amazing image, very wel captured..!!!
Guto (1738) 2006-03-08 11:45
Wow. That a shot that I still want to try in the future. I red somewhere that photographer use the mode "B" of exposure, close the aperture and wait a lot for the lightning. Once you got it with a 2 seconds exposure, I bet you tried a lot of times until this (and the previous one) successful picture was captured. Well, I know very well how is a rainy day when you are on the beach... nothing else to do! I hope your "caipirinha" was good, when waiting for the lightning to come :-).

balbaro Jose, uuffff.... que buena foto!

skegz (453) 2006-03-09 10:57
An amazing photo - great timing
rabdelnoor (3421) 2006-03-09 16:15
A really impressive shot. It's amazing how you captured these two strikes. Perfect timing and beautiful colours. One of your best post so far. Parabéns
cam (9041) 2006-03-09 21:55
Wonderful,both pictures are so great,you are making good use of your situation.
Do you use any special equipment,or you just wait with your finger on the trigger?.
MvS (4163) 2006-03-10 15:13
Great effect with these two strong lights, and they make nice reflections in the sea. One wonders how it looks where they strike the water. Could you take that shot for us next time ;-)
worldcitizen (6971) 2006-03-10 18:21
The lightening is truly dramatic. Congratulations on capturing such a powerful moment.
capthaddock (28790) 2006-03-11 9:05
Hi Jose - absolutely gantastic, simply stunning, excellent timing, what a dramatic moment.

Linda imagem!!! Não sei como não tinha vista antes ainda. E que habilidade para capturar esse momento!
Composição perfeita em todos os aspectos. Nada a criticar, só elogiar. Parabéns e muitíssimo obrigado por compartilhar.
Niara78 (0) 2006-03-13 20:35
You have the best lightning shots I saw so far, Jose! Such beauties! Twins, exactly - and I love the deep blue background...look how they strike into the water...magnificent!
talikf (1290) 2006-03-16 14:15
You are really lucky to have that view from your apartment! I live across the sea as well but I never had the chance to take pictures of lightning, that was quite a storm! Well done. Tali
nofer (3215) 2006-03-16 23:44
Dois de uma só vez.... muito bom!!! conseguiu ótima composição com boa nitidez e cores.
Uma ótimo momento!

Terrible toute cette énergie que l'on ne peut pas récupérer.
Superbe image impressionnant
lastofthebarons (2) 2006-03-21 19:46
What a tremendous example of the force of nature. One of the best.
wgreis (8267) 2006-03-25 20:07
Fantástica foto José Augusto,
apesar de ser uma imagem comum na mídia, até hoje não consegui fazer uma nem de perto igual. As cores da sua são fortes e bonitas.
bigtim (3518) 2006-03-26 2:05
C'est une photo vraiment exeptionnel que tu nous présente la! C'est 2 éclairs ainsi que la couleur du ciel sont vraiment magnifique!
Merci pour le partage,
lasscor (7640) 2006-03-31 17:20
Very nice shot giving us the right idea of the power of the nature.Beautiful colors and light.
MLINES (12516) 2006-04-08 16:58
Hi Jose,This looks like natures way of making hydrogen from seawater. Spectacular timing to get both strikes at one time. Excellent blues. Good job.
napdsp (744) 2006-04-09 22:25
Amazing shot. How far are you from lightening. It looks really close. Wonderful colors (purle and blue), textures (ripples), and shape (lightenings). Are you a lightening chaser also? TFS.
nyquist (66) 2006-04-19 17:43
Very nice picture and just in time. You sure waited for too long before you take this one :)
It's very interesting the lightning so stong with the sea so calm ... it also give a feeling of peace and fear at the same time.
tdanny (663) 2006-04-22 12:07
Oh my, am not surprised this picture is a incredible shoot! Wonder how long you took just to wait for the right timing to shoot this.
It's just like you've captured God's orchestration in still. Just amazing, well done Jose.
jbweasle (9373) 2006-04-29 9:09
Hello Jose, this is an excellently timed capture. The detail in the lightning is superb and I like the overall blue hue.
Luciana (2269) 2006-05-03 10:41
Grande momento, heim! Dois raios gigantes e gordos de uma vez só! Animal!
A composição, enquadramento, cores e luzes, tudo perfeitinho...
aznegrao (10316) 2006-05-08 9:27
Fantastica e dificil captura Jose Augusto, de tirar o folego.

Jose Augusto Hauer ,
Great lighting captured.
I never got success with lightining till today.
What Can I do to get that.
This is just impressive shot.
Very well done my friend.
kami1 (579) 2006-06-27 3:36
Oh My My, now that is not something we get to see and shot everyday, well done
Mojgan (44) 2006-09-02 7:46
This is a fascinating picture. The blue colour of the sea and the sky is so lovely and unique that I could not take my eyes from it for several minutes and also the lightening has doubled the beauty of it. I think this picture moves even the most indifferent viewers and makes them to think about the wonders and beauties of nature.
sergio1 (12152) 2006-09-15 11:21
Perfect shot to the storm. I like the decisive moment and lights. Excellent really. I don't more commentary !!!!
benkrut (2407) 2006-09-28 17:55
Congratulations for the picture you took and for the appartment with such a beatiful view.
The image shows a great power of the nature and makes feel about people as a very tiny pieces of the surrounding world.
branley (3681) 2006-11-17 5:48
I found it hard to choose from your impressive gallery but this one of the double lightening strike won the day because of its brightness, colour and symmetry of the lightening bolts. A really superb capture and one for my favourites.
Ghivelder (0) 2006-11-17 18:59
Realmente fantastica. Parabens...
batalay (35583) 2006-12-13 16:57
I join the chorus of admirers of you photo, "Gemini" (well named as well). Many years ago I met a physicist who was studying lightnings, and he had a light detector connected to his camera, so that when bright flash occurred, immediately the camera shutter would open, and record as many as a dozen lightnings in the same frame. But you appear to have replaced the electronic light detector with your eyes and quick reflexes. Warm regards,
Leilani (1385) 2006-12-14 21:15
Again, a superb shot! Very well done. Lightening shots have now become my favorite. Shame we don't get many storms here. The blues in the photo are so beautiful. I like how the sea even has what looks like ripples from the lightening strike and the bright reflection just under the right lightening bolt on the water .
ManuMay (34619) 2007-02-06 5:52
Wonderful shot, and colours.
Bruno40 (6658) 2007-06-20 11:40

Wow, Zeca, this is amazing!! Fabulous colors and clarity. Tell me, how in the world did you catch this? Was it just a lucky moment or do you have some tips for me?
Thanks for sharing this tremendous photo!
D4hu (98) 2008-07-11 23:29
