Perhentian Island, Terengganu by Shutterhack

This is about 15 minutes before the storm that lasted on and off for a couple of days. The Perhentian Islands has a reputation ranking of electrical storm activity, with or without rain, associated with the monsoon season, which gives some unique opportunities for photos… if you can find a spot that is not in the middle of “action” you’ll be quite safe for lightning photograpy.

I really should have used a wide angle on this one instead of the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 Prime, but what actually happened was I was torn between a wide angle for better panorama, and a fast lens considering the frequent lighting strikes in the clouds.
