Weekend Image Post – Amazing Pics

We use a popular idiom: ‘A picture is worth a thousand words.’ There is also a Chinese proverb: ‘One picture is worth ten thousand words.’ Indeed, every picture tells a story. A picture is easier to understand and convey what may take many words to express.

Every Sunday either we publish a featured artist, a photo post, an infographics or some amazing, weird, funny and cool pictures and splendid photographs of varied interests from around the world.

This week we publish a collection of amazing lightning pics from around the world.

It’s not always so easy to make such a collection as many owners disable downloading of their photos. We highly respect owners’ rights.

Amazing Lightnings

Lightning is an atmospheric discharge of electricity accompanied by thunder, which typically occurs during thunderstorms, and sometimes during volcanic eruptions or dust storms. In theatmospheric electrical discharge, a leader of a bolt of lightning can travel at speeds of 36,000 km/h, and can reach temperatures approaching 30,000 °C, hot enough to fuse silica sand into glass channels known as fulgurites which are normally hollow and can extend some distance into the ground. There are some 16 million lightning storms in the world every year.
