Shocking Photo From Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore

photo of the week for Monday, 2011, July 4
Photographer: Costa Dillon

Sometimes being in the right place at the right time is the key to a great photo. Costa Dillon, the superintendent of Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, captured this striking image during a recent day on the lakeshore.

"Just lucky," he replied when asked how he captured the shot. "Stood on the shore and took a series of photos hoping there would be a lightning strike while I was shooting. Next to last shot before I left."

Awesome!

Fantastic photo. Beauty in the fury.

REAL GREEN ENERGY :). Wonder if there was a fish kill in this strike.
