  3. Perfect!
    I had once taken a photo of the lightning. It took me several tries and two hours to get a reasonably good shot. I will share it sometime in my blog :)

  4. The brilliant lithe gymnast
    Monsoona Sparkley,
    of the
    Mumbai Lightning Group
    cracking
    her twirling rope
    as
    she leaps, jumps
    and tumbles across
    performing
    in a flash,
    her gymnastic manoevres
    in the individual event at the
    Sky Olympics....

    If photographs were audible,
    you might
    have heard the clouds
    thundering and roaring
    in approval.....

  15. Awesome. Normally when the sky is electrically charged with loud thunder claps people shut themselves indoors. You dared to go out and capture the lightning!
