As they approached us, several bolts of lightning flashing, causing all of thephotographers to shift their attention from the giant rock to capturing the crack of lighting bolts. As the storm passed over our heads, I noticed the lightning start striking closer and closer to Uluru, whereas a few minutes prior, it was literally 180-degrees behind us.
I had my Canon 15mm Fisheye Funkbuster lens on and didn’t have the time to switch to anything longer (partly because of how fast the storm was moving and because of the heavy rain that began to fall) so I had to rely on a rather significant crop, making me even more thankful for shooting with a high-megapixel FF camera. Of all my attempts, this was the best result depicting lightning striking in the vicinity of Uluru, which apparently is super rare. Editing was pretty straightforward just using Lightroom.
