The runner up for my personal favorites from Catatumbo, the worlds lightning capital, is the clear air lightning bolt that I took during the sunset of my first day in Venezuela. I have struggled to shoot such a bolt for years now and put all my hopes on catching one in Venezuela. It didn‘t even take me one day in the small lagoon of Maracaibo Lake to get this shot, a little photographic dream for me. Talking about the spirit.
