Even more temporary -- and more deadly -- than yesterday's fireworks are nature's own fireworks. From the time man first took notice of the sky above him lightning has been revered -- and feared. The ancient Greeks gave this weapon to their most powerful god Zeuss. And it presents some unique challenges to the photographer to say the least. Special techniques, and a lot of dumb luck are the requirements to capture this phenomenon which is quite literally "gone in a flash".
