Finally, a long awaited shot! By long, I mean 7 years long. Truly a dream come true moment, a moment lasting a few milliseconds but captured for a lifetime. It was just as though God had planned this moment, the lightning hitting the iconic Burj Khalifa to kick start my 2020. Why this is so special one may ask. It’s just one of those compositions that was sculpted in my head 7 years ago, and ever since, I have always been coming to the same spot, waiting for hours, staying overnight in heavy rains, hoping to capture the moment. And this time too, I decided to try my luck, went back to the same spot, set up my camera, hoping to finally capture, and yet deep inside preparing myself for another disappointment. But this time, Within 2 minutes of setting up my camera, there it came, the bolt from the blue. This one shot enough to wrap my day up, however, I continued to stay till 6am in the morning. Got a few more shots, but the first one would always be special.
