(BEIRUT, LEBANON) — Lebanese photographer Karim Bechara posted a beautiful photograph of lightning strokes above Lebanon on Facebook on Thursday. The lightning came as a result of heavy rainfall pounding various regions of the country this week.
Bechara used a long exposure to produce the image and captioned: “The reason lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place is that the same place isn’t there the second time.”
Beshara’s photo was featured on ABC News as one of the week’s top photos from around the globe.
Beirut-based ABC correspondent Alexander Marquardt posted the photo on Twitter calling it an “amazing shot.”
