Lightning strikes thrice! Amazing images from a storm chaser
A storm chaser from Arizona took this incredible photo of a lightning strike in downtown Phoenix.
Mike Oblinski, who uses a long exposure lens to capture his images, says:
"Ever since I was a kid, I've been obsessed with the weather."
" We get amazing clouds, awesome dust storms and serious amounts of lightning."
Mr Oblinski has self-published two volumes of his annual storm chasing adventures throughout Arizona. See more of his pics here.
