The Coolest Picture of Lightning You’ll Likely See Today

Given the good timing of this shot, the photographer called it a ‘once in a lifetime’ image. The picture was taken with several filters added and six second exposure time.

When lightning hits water, it usually disipates in the immediate area. But depending on the level of voltage and the path of resistance, the bolt can still affect a large distance of surrounding water, so generally it's a good idea to play it safe and not be anywhere in the water during a storm.
