Greg McCowan has been trying to capture a rainbow and lightening bolt in the same photo for many years, according to BoredPanda.com. McCown, a real estate salesman, saw a rainbow with a strike of lightening while driving to work in Arizona several years ago and has been trying to capture that image since. He has finally succeeded and the photograph is dramatic. The shot was taken when a rainbow appeared in the sky over Marana, a small town just to the northwest of Tucson. McCowan, who photographs nature and teaches photography workshops, says:
A basic DSLR camera kit is enough, however, it’s not an easy quest as you have to guess where the lightning will strike. “Our reaction time to see lightning and hit the trigger in time to catch it just are not fast enough,” McCown said. “So I used a lightning trigger – this is a small device that sits on top of the camera, senses the lightning and fires the trigger.”
