This year I moved into an apartment which has this spectacular view of the Brooklyn Bridge. This has afforded me the opportunity to photograph the bridge even during the heaviest of storms. On this evening, I photographed away, hoping to catch that ever precious moment, of lightning striking in just the right place.

View of the Brooklyn Bridge during a lightning storm this summer with the East River below and Manhattan in the background.

    I remember this evening, me and my husband were having diner with his parents, his dad's a photographer and really wanted to go to Brooklyn bridge park to take some pictures of the Manhattan skyline, we had a really pleasant half an hour in which he was setting the tripod and starting to shoot then, without warning, crazy rain, wind and an awesome light show!
    He didn't get any lightning, but he got some nice pictures of the bridge...
