Lightning And Rainbow Captured Together In Once In A Lifetime Shot

It’s been 7 years since Greg McCown has been trying to photograph a lightning bolt and rainbow in one shot. The spectacular image the 42-year-old- real estate salesperson saw once when driving to work in Arizona left such an impression that he knew he had to shoot it someday. He finally succeeded.

A basic DSLR camera kit is enough, says  McCown, however, it’s not an easy quest as you have to guess where the lightning will strike. “Our reaction time to see lightning and hit the trigger in time to catch it just are not fast enough,” McCown said. “So I used a lightning trigger – this is a small device that sits on top of the camera, senses the lightning and fires the trigger.”
