Interesting Photo of the Day: Lightning Photograph Achieved After a Four Year Struggle

Have you ever had an idea for an image in your head and spent days, weeks, or months trying to produce it. How about four years? That’s how long this photographer (known as wmbpix on social media) spent watching the weather and chasing storms until he was finally able to capture the image he had imagined:

Perseverance is the lesson here. Even if you there’s a low chance of you getting your ideal image, it’s better than giving up and having no chance. After four years, you would think that this photographer would have given up on getting a good lightning shot. But one morning, he saw a storm off the coast on the radar, grabbed his tripod, and tried once more. And this time, he succeeded.

“4 years of trying to be in the right place at the right time for a good lightning shot. Then one morning I saw a storm on radar off the coast of Savannah Ga. Grabbed my tripod and headed to the Island to try. This one made me very happy. This was shot at Tybee Island Ga”

For further training, we have an article on how to capture lightning
