Photos:Grand Canyon Struck By Lightening

The Grand Canyon is awe-inspiring as it is, but these jaw-dropping shots of lightning striking the natural wonder are electrifying.

Photographer Rolf Maeder explains his atmospheric shots: 'Sometimes an opportunity comes very unexpected. On August 30th, my friends Scott Stulberg, Holly Kehrt, both wonderful photographers, and I were driving from Sedona to the Grand Canyon to get some sunset shots.”

'After a short time being there, we noticed that we couldn't get what we wanted because of the very hazy light. So we decided to return to Sedona, just shortly checking out some more viewpoints.

'On the Moran Point we noticed that far away a lightning storm was building up, so we started setting up our tripods.”

The shot was taken  at 9pm with a Nikon D800, 24mm at f/8, ISO 400.
