Epic Storm from the Ruins by FlorentCourty Epic Storm from the Ruins by FlorentCourty
Magnificent supercell storm seen at dusk from the ruins of a castle called "le Château d'Urfé".
There were tons of lightnings, for this image I made a stack of 10 exposures of 6 seconds each and only kept the lightnings I wanted on each of them, but in one single image of 6 seconds I sometimes had more than 10 visible lightnings ! It might give you an idea of how crazy was the storm .. !

With the ruins as a foreground, the mist creeping in the valley, the late dusk lights, the moon behind me lighting the castle, it was truly an impressive moment.

Loire, France.

Very impressive. Great camera work, especially its position, just catching the ruins in the foreground, setting them and the sweeping countryside against Nature's magnificent light show.

Fantastique! La ville ressemble à une coulée de lave sous ce sombre amas électrique. L'atmosphère dramatique est joliment mis en boite! :sun::clap:
