Incredible un-edited pictures of lightning hitting the Statue of Liberty, Eiffel Tower, Big Ben and Taj Mahal

These are actual, un-edited, non-photoshopped, bona fide images caught by top international cameraman Rectilion Hindlebunker.

Quite unbelievably, Mr Hindlebunker took all four images on the same two week camping holiday. Previously to this, Mr Hindlebunker had spent an unsuccessful fifty-seven years trying to get a photograph of a ‘Jerk’ of lightning, and having never actually seen any lightning first hand, had given up the idea as a myth.

Mr Hindlebunker used a Pentax Junior ‘Mr Happy’ Disposable Camera, with shutter speed and aperture size set to ‘Smiley Time’ and he was leaning on his six year old son’s head to steady the shots.
