Freezing the volcano’s lightning

in fotografie links

Fotograaf Lucas Jackson maakte voor Reuters een foto van de bliksem in de uitbarstende vulkaan in IJsland die ons allen eindelijk eens herinnerde hoe de lucht eruit zag zonder al die vliegmachines, en verteld hoe hij de foto heeft gemaakt:

I figured I would write up a little about what it took to get the image. As soon as I got this assignment, a photograph of a volcano erupting with lightning inside of the ash plume was on my mind. I had seen one a couple of years ago from a volcano in South America so I knew it happened. When I was watching the ash during the first dusk I saw plenty of lightning so I knew I had a shot at making this picture.
