Lightning Over Greece

Zeus must've been really angry! Photographer Chris Kotsiopoulos (previously on Neatorama) took this photo sequence of 70 lightning over Ikaria Island, Greece:

Fire in the sky! This is a photo sequence containing 70 lightning bolts, taken at Ikaria island during a severe thunderstorm that took place the night of the total lunar eclipse at June 15, 2011.

In order to make the sequence, I set the camera to a tripod taking 20 second shots continuously. After 83 minutes I ended up with approximately 90 lightning shots. I had to exclude around 20 because the photo condensed so much that didn't look nice. Also, in many shots I have captured more than one lightning. I believe that the number of actual lightning captured that night is more than 100.

I do landscape photography since 2006 and this is my lightning personal record! The previous is this one with 42 lightning captured.

I've never seen ''lightning'' being used as a countable noun. Lightning, not lightningS, please. You may say bolts of lightning, if you eally must count.
