Day One Hundred Fifty One, June 22, 2011

electric!

Shanghai summers are home for sudden and powerful electrical storms. Today we were at the pool for the first very hot day of the summer and at some point the storm arrived. I love how scientist try to explain this incredible phenomena without being able to agree on a single explanation. I spent the last hour surfing the science pages and reading about the subject only to be convinced that they cannot reasonably explain it and they do not really understand it. And here we were standing under an outstanding electrical storm and everything in me wanted to just be in awe of the wonder of it and to be impressed by its power with no need for “sensible” explanations. Lea and I just wow’ed at it repeatedly as I took some shots and I am sure that the next time another one comes around I will be just as impressed!

  1. Amazing, I’ve never seen an electrical storm like it. Nature is craaaaazy! It looks so great against the super modern architecture as well.

  2. These are beautiful …
    My imagination had me charging through the streets of Gotham City with the crimefighting superhero as the villian laughed aloud and the lightening cracked in the night sky above us …
