Semi-matt archival photographic print of lightning at Noirmont Point Nazi Rangefinder Turret
BOOM was probably the most dangerous shot I’ve ever captured. Like any photographer, when a good storm comes, it’s a great time to head out with a camera. I drove to Noirmont Point where this Nazi rangefinder turret is and framed up this composition. Photographed with a tilt-shift lens and some lights to illuminate the structure. Once I had it set up, I kept hitting the shutter remote for repeated 30 second exposures. The lightning kept striking, but not in the right place for my shot, after maybe 20 attempts, the shutter closed and I saw the lightning strike in exactly the right place, (it hit the bunker just behind the turret and I could feel the charged air!) At this stage, the sudden danger of the situation dawned on me and you have never seen anyone pack up their kit so fast 🙂
