Iwo Jima Lightning

I was on my way home when I was passing by the Iwo Jima memorial. It was pouring but I figured I’d wait around to see what would happen. Luckily as soon as I arrived, there was a break in the rain. I ran as fast as I could and grabbed a few shots. I was super lucky that one of them got this little lightning strike. I don’t know which is more surprising, the fact that this was hand held or that I barely got wet trying to get it. Both are a win to me 🙂
