“I always loved chasing weather and light but I almost didn’t get this shot,” Ms. Labrozzi said. “I was just about to pack it up when my friend said, ‘Let’s just stay a little longer,’ and then bang! I really have to thank this person. It is because of him I got this shot. I even had my back turned when the boom went off. It was so bright it was like daylight and I said, ‘Damn I hope I caught that one.’ When I looked in the viewfinder I was stunned. So now I’m even more of a storm chaser. This is still one of my favorites.”
