Yesterday is was invited by @tablemountainca to spend the day on top of the mountain in the WiFi Lounge working. A storm was coming up and the next thing lightning! Now growing up in Johannesburg I have seen my share of lightning before but this in Cape Town I have never. Not this intense an long though. I tried getting a shot.... but failed. That's until I came home ready to edit and spotted the faintest of lightning strikes on one of my images. I was over the moon as this was a one in a million shot (or in camera terms 1/500) I was blown away. Still am. Its not the best lighting shot ever but it still is a very cool shot. About 2 min later I got drenched in that oncoming storm and ran back to the lounge. 2 more lightning strikes and boom power out. There we sat for the next 2 hours with no power awaiting to see if we could get down. They managed to get the generators up and running and eventually recovered the power.
What an incredible day on Table Mountain. One i will probable never forget. There's a lot more images on my Facebook page should you want to go view.
