Charges Ahead

“I cannot describe the eerie feeling I had when I walked in on this scene,” writes Julie Fletcher of this photo, which received an honorable mention in the Places category of the 2013 National Geographic Photo Contest.

“I followed a massive storm front for several hundred kilometers hoping to capture something special, but this blew my mind. The surreal milky green water is a natural phenomenon caused by electromagnetic activity from the lightning hitting the water’s surface. There was no rain where I was and not much wind either, but in the distance the sky was charged and angry, subjecting its wrath [to] the graveyard of dead trees in this normally very dry lakebed. I was able to capture a series of unique images, this being one of the best.”
