Man Photographed Lightning Bolt Hitting Neighbor's House.

Kane Quinnell took this once-in-a-lifetime photo of a lightning bolt hitting his neighbor's house:

After setting the camera for a four-second exposure he began shooting pictures, suspecting there was little chance of lightning flashing while the shutter was open.

"I hit the button … and there was nothing. I hit the button again … and nothing. On about the fourth attempt I hit the button again and I saw this lightning and heard the thunder. "It was like a crack. The next thing I was about two metres in the air - it scared the hell out of me."

Mr Quinnell estimated the lightning struck about 20 metres away. "I think it hit the house behind me." Unhurt, but buzzing with adrenaline, he rushed inside to check the photo on his computer.

"I was amazed. It was the first storm picture I had really taken."
