I saw this photo of lightning striking the Statue of Liberty and was impressed. It’s a really cool photo taken by photographer Jay Fine, but what impressed me was that it took less than two hours and only 80 shots before he got the photo he wanted.
As someone who has spent many hours in the early morning, on the coldest day of the year in Chicago, getting frostbite on a finger, going through hundreds of shots just to get one I liked makes me realize that I need more practice. Or maybe Jay was just having a lucky night.
Eventually, sometime after I lost feeling in at least one fingertip, I got my picture.

I had actually been hoping to get some nice shots that day in the dawn twilight, but none of them turned out well.
