This is a photo sequence of 42 stacked shots, caught in Olympic Stadium, Athens during a severe thunderstorm. It only took me aproximatelly 30 minutes to capture 51 thunders.
Nine shots were destroyed because of the brightness of the thunders. See also the waterdrops from the drain pipe. They seem ‘still’ as they instlantly illuminated from the lightnings.
The answer to the crucial question: No… The big thunder didnt hit me on the head! It stroke a few hundred feet in front of me..
