When I saw a storm approaching in Savute, Botswana, I quickly headed to the centre of the marsh with the aim of capturing a lone tree in front of the lightning. When I got there, I had a 360 degree view of storms all around me. It seemed like the only place where it wasn't raining was where I had set up my tripod. I set my camera up with an intervalometer taking repeated 29 second shots for an hour and a half to try to capture the lightning, hoping that I had estimated the exposure correctly so the periodic flashes wouldn't be too bright. I had hoped that the combination of the clear sky above would create an interesting contrast with the menacing clouds, but hadn't anticpated that the shape of the bolt of lightning would also mirror that of the tree.
